Transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
acyl-CoA:sn-glycerol 3-phosphate 2-O-acyltransferase
Reaction(IUBMB)
an acyl-CoA + sn-glycerol 3-phosphate = CoA + a 2-acyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate [RN:R06872]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
acyl-CoA [CPD:C00040];
sn-glycerol 3-phosphate [CPD:C00093]
Product
CoA [CPD:C00010];
2-acyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate [CPD:C03974]
Comment
A membrane-associated enzyme required for suberin or cutin synthesis in plants. Active with a wide range of acyl-CoA substrates (C16:0-C24:0). The enzyme from some sources has much higher activity with omega-oxidized acyl-CoAs. Some enzymes are bifunctional and have an additional phosphatase activity producing sn-2-monoacylglycerols.
