Acyl-CoA:monoacylglycerol acyltransferase (MOGAT; EC 184.108.40.206) 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 Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include 2-acylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity and diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MOGAT2.
