IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
1-alkyl-2-acetylglycerol O-acyltransferase
Other name:
1-hexadecyl-2-acetylglycerol acyltransferase
Systematic name:
acyl-CoA:1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycerol O-acyltransferase



A number of acyl-CoAs can act as acyl donor; maximum activity is obtained with linoleoyl-CoA. Not identical with EC diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase.
