A novel human homologue of Escherichia coli, yeast and plant 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase has been isolated from U937 cell cDNA. Expression of the cloned sequence in 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase-deficient E. coli resulted in increased incorporation of oleic acid into cellular phospholipids. Membranes made from COS7 cells transfected with the cDNA exhibited higher acyltransferase activity towards a range of donor fatty acyl-CoAs and lysophosphatidic acid. Northern… CONTINUE READING
