Mass balance status: Balanced.
Enzyme Commission Primary Name: 2-acylglycerol O-acyltransferase
Enzyme Commission Synonyms: acylglycerol palmitoyltransferase, monoglyceride acyltransferase, acyl coenzyme A-monoglyceride acyltransferase, monoacylglycerol acyltransferase
Standard Gibbs Free Energy (ΔrG'° in kcal/mol): 325.0658 [Latendresse13]
Enzyme Commission Summary:
Various 2-acylglycerols can act as acceptor; palmitoyl-CoA and other long-chain acyl-CoAs can act as donors. The sn-1 position and the sn-3 position are both acylated, at about the same rate.
