MBOAT2 protein, human

Known as: Lysophospholipid Acyltransferase 2, O-Acyltransferase Domain-Containing Protein 2, Lysophosphatidylethanolamine Acyltransferase 
Lysophospholipid acyltransferase 2 (520 aa, ~60 kDa) is encoded by the human MBOAT2 gene. This protein is involved in lysophospholipid metabolism.
