IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
acetylalkylglycerol acetylhydrolase
Other name:
alkylacetylglycerol acetylhydrolase
Systematic name:
2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol acetylhydrolase



Hydrolysis of the acetyl group from the 1-alkyl-2-acetyl and 1-alkyl-3-acetyl substrates occurs at apparently identical rates. The enzyme from Erlich ascites cells is membrane-bound. It differs from lipoprotein lipase (EC since 1,2-diacetyl-sn-glycerols are not substrates. It also differs from EC (1-acetyl-2-alkyl-glycerophosphocholine esterase).
