Highlight Arabidopsis glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase 9 (GPAT9) is an sn-1 specific acyl-CoA:GPAT that contributes to intracellular glycerolipid biosynthesis in seeds, developing leaves and pollen grains, but not to extracellular glycerolipid biosynthesis. 
Plant sn-Glycerol-3-Phosphate Acyltransferases: Biocatalysts Involved in the Biosynthesis of Intracellular and Extracellular Lipids.
TLDR
Current biochemical and molecular knowledge regarding plant GPAT are highlighted, and deficiencies in their functions in the context of plant acyl-lipid biosynthesis are discussed. Expand
A GPAT1 Mutation in Arabidopsis Enhances Plant Height but Impairs Seed Oil Biosynthesis
TLDR
The data suggest that knockout of GPAT1 impairs glycerolipid metabolism in Arabidopsis, leading to reduced seed yield, but promotes the biosynthesis of GA, which ultimately enhances plant height. Expand
Plastid Glycerol-3-phosphate Acyltransferase Enhanced Plant Growth and Prokaryotic Glycerolipid Synthesis in Brassica napus
TLDR
The results suggest that BnATS1 promotes accumulation of polyunsaturated fatty acids in cellular membranes, thus enhances plant growth under low-temperature conditions in Brassica napus and prokaryotic glycerolipid biosynthesis. Expand
