UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for DGAT2L6 Gene
Diglyceride acyltransferase that uses fatty acyl-CoA as substrate (PubMed:15671038). Particularly active with oleate as a substrate (PubMed:15671038). Has no wax synthase activity to produce wax esters (PubMed:15671038). Able to use 1-monoalkylglycerol (1-MAkG) as an acyl acceptor for the synthesis of monoalkyl-monoacylglycerol (MAMAG) (PubMed:28420705).
