Entry
EC 3.1.1.71                 Enzyme                                 

Name
acetylalkylglycerol acetylhydrolase;
alkylacetylglycerol acetylhydrolase
Class
Hydrolases;
Acting on ester bonds;
Carboxylic-ester hydrolases
BRITE hierarchy
Sysname
2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol acetylhydrolase
Reaction(IUBMB)
2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol + H2O = 1-alkyl-sn-glycerol + acetate [RN:R04043]
Reaction(KEGG)
Substrate
2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol [CPD:C03820];
H2O [CPD:C00001]
Product
1-alkyl-sn-glycerol [CPD:C02773];
acetate [CPD:C00033]
Comment
Hydrolysis of the acetyl group from the 1-alkyl-2-acetyl and 1-alkyl-3-acetyl substrates occurs at apparently identical rates. The enzyme from Erlich ascites cells is membrane-bound. It differs from lipoprotein lipase (EC 3.1.1.34) since 1,2-diacetyl-sn-glycerols are not substrates. It also differs from EC 3.1.1.47, 1-acetyl-2-alkyl-glycerophosphocholine esterase.
