This gene encodes a member of the lysophospholipid acyltransferase family. The encoded protein catalyzes the reacylation of lysophosphatidylglycerol to phosphatidylglycerol, a membrane phospholipid that is an important precursor for the synthesis of cardiolipin. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2016]
GeneCards Summary for LPGAT1 Gene
LPGAT1 (Lysophosphatidylglycerol Acyltransferase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring acyl groups.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for LPGAT1 Gene
Lysophosphatidylglycerol (LPG) specific acyltransferase that recognizes various acyl-CoAs and LPGs as substrates but demonstrates a clear preference for long chain saturated fatty acyl-CoAs and oleoyl-CoA as acyl donors. Prefers oleoyl-LPG over palmitoyl-LPG as an acyl receptor and oleoyl-CoA over lauroyl-CoA as an acyl donor.
