Acyl-CoA:monoacylglycerol acyltransferase (MOGAT; EC 188.8.131.52) catalyzes the synthesis of diacylglycerols, the precursor of physiologically important lipids such as triacylglycerol and phospholipids (Yen et al., 2002 [PubMed 12077311]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MOGAT1 Gene
MOGAT1 (Monoacylglycerol O-Acyltransferase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring acyl groups other than amino-acyl groups and diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MOGAT2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MOGAT1 Gene
Catalyzes the formation of diacylglycerol from 2-monoacylglycerol and fatty acyl-CoA. Probably not involved in absorption of dietary fat in the small intestine (By similarity).
