Summaries for DGAT2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DGAT2 Gene

  • This gene encodes one of two enzymes which catalyzes the final reaction in the synthesis of triglycerides in which diacylglycerol is covalently bound to long chain fatty acyl-CoAs. The encoded protein catalyzes this reaction at low concentrations of magnesium chloride while the other enzyme has high activity at high concentrations of magnesium chloride. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for DGAT2 Gene

DGAT2 (Diacylglycerol O-Acyltransferase 2) 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 protein homodimerization activity and 2-acylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MOGAT2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DGAT2 Gene

  • Essential acyltransferase that catalyzes the terminal and only committed step in triacylglycerol synthesis by using diacylglycerol and fatty acyl CoA as substrates. Required for synthesis and storage of intracellular triglycerides. Probably plays a central role in cytosolic lipid accumulation. In liver, is primarily responsible for incorporating endogenously synthesized fatty acids into triglycerides (By similarity). Functions also as an acyl-CoA retinol acyltransferase (ARAT).
