Biochemical characterization of human acyl coenzyme A: 2-monoacylglycerol acyltransferase-3 (MGAT3).

Abstract

BACKGROUND MGAT3 catalyzes the synthesis of 1,2-diacylglycerol from 2-monoacylglycerol in an acyl CoA-dependent reaction. Although initially identified as an MGAT enzyme, MGAT3 is more closely related to DGAT2 than to MGAT1 and MGAT2. Furthermore, MGAT3 possesses both DGAT and MGAT activities, in vitro. MGAT3 is almost exclusively expressed in the small… (More)
