IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase
Other names:
1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphate acyltransferase
1-acyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate acyltransferase
1-acylglycero-3-phosphate acyltransferase
1-acylglycerolphosphate acyltransferase
1-acylglycerophosphate acyltransferase
lysophosphatidic acid-acyltransferase
