This gene encodes a member of the 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase family. This integral membrane protein converts lysophosphatidic acid to phosphatidic acid, the second step in de novo phospholipid biosynthesis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for AGPAT4 Gene
AGPAT4 (1-Acylglycerol-3-Phosphate O-Acyltransferase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Regulation of lipid metabolism by Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARalpha) and triacylglycerol biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring acyl groups and 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is LCLAT1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for AGPAT4 Gene
Converts lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) into phosphatidic acid by incorporating an acyl moiety at the sn-2 position of the glycerol backbone.
