GeneCards Summary for MBOAT2 Gene

MBOAT2 (Membrane Bound O-Acyltransferase Domain Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MBOAT2 include Fanconi Anemia, Complementation Group D2 and Chanarin-Dorfman Syndrome. Among its related pathways are Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MBOAT1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for MBOAT2 Gene

  • Acyltransferase which catalyzes the transfert of an acyl group from an acyl-CoA to a lysophospholipid leading to the production of a phospholipid and participates in the reacylation step of the phospholipid remodeling pathway also known as the Lands cycle (PubMed:18772128). Catalyzes preferentially the acylation of lysophosphatidylethanolamine (1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine or LPE) and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) and to a lesser extend lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) and lysophosphatidylserine (LPS) (PubMed:18772128). Prefers oleoyl-CoA as the acyl donor (PubMed:18772128). May be involved in chondrocyte differentiation (By similarity).
