Summaries for MOGAT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MOGAT1 Gene

  • Acyl-CoA:monoacylglycerol acyltransferase (MOGAT; EC 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 Metabolism and triacylglycerol biosynthesis. Gene Ontology (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).
