diacylglycerol acyltransferase


Also found in: Acronyms, Wikipedia.

di·ac·yl·glyc·er·ol ac·yl·trans·fer·ase

an enzyme, in fat biosynthesis, that catalyzes the transfer of an acyl moiety from acyl-CoA to 1,2-diacylglycerol thus forming free coenzyme A and triacylglycerol.

diacylglycerol acyltransferase

This name is not valid and regarded as deleted by the Brenda Enzyme Information System. It is already listed as EC 2.3.1.20 (recommended name: diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase; systematic name: acyl-CoA:1,2-diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase).
