|Phospholipid + 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol <=> lysophospholipid + triacylglycerol|
- This enzyme differs from EC 22.214.171.124 by synthesising triacylglycerol
using an acyl-CoA-independent mechanism.
- The specificity of the enzyme for the acyl group in the phospholipid
varies with species, e.g., the enzyme from castor bean (Ricinus
communis) preferentially incorporates vernoloyl (12,13-epoxyoctadec-
9-enoyl) groups into triacylglycerol, whereas that from the hawk's
beard (Crepis palaestina) incorporates both ricinoleoyl
(12-hydroxyoctadec-9-enoyl) and vernoloyl groups.
- The enzyme from the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae specifically
transfers acyl groups from the sn-2 position of the phospholipid to
diacylglycerol, thus forming an sn-1-lysophospholipid.
