ENZYME entry: EC 2.3.1.147

Accepted Name
Glycerophospholipid arachidonoyl-transferase (CoA-independent).
Reaction catalysed
1-organyl-2-arachidonoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine + 1-organyl-2-lyso-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine <=> 1-organyl-2-arachidonoyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoethanolamine + 1-organyl-2-lyso-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes the transfer of arachidonate and other polyenoic fatty acids from intact choline or ethanolamine-containing glycerophospholipids to the sn-2 position of a lyso- glycerophospholipid.
  • The organyl group on sn-1 of the donor or acceptor molecule can be alkyl, acyl or alk-1-enyl.
  • The term 'radyl' has sometimes been used to refer to such substituting groups.
  • Differs from EC 2.3.1.148 in not requiring CoA and in its specificity for poly-unsaturated acyl groups.
