Over 100 different phospholipid molecular species are known to be present in mammalian cells and tissues. Fatty acid remodeling systems for phospholipids including acyl-CoA: lysophospholipid acyltransferases, CoA-dependent and CoA-independent transacylation systems and lysophospholipase/transacylase are involved in the biosynthesis of these molecular species. Acyl-CoA:1-acyl-2-lysophospholipid acyltransferase prefers polyunsaturated fatty acyl-CoAs as acyl donors while acyl-CoA:2-acyl-1… CONTINUE READING
