glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase

glyc·er·ol-3-phos·phate ac·yl·trans·fer·ase

(glis'ĕr-ol fos'fāt as'il-trans'fĕr-ās),
An enzyme that participates in phospholipid biosynthesis, catalyzing the transfer of an acyl group from a fatty acyl-CoA to sn-glycerol-3-phosphate, producing coenzyme A and lysophosphatidic acid.

In this study, DR did not affect the expression of several genes in the LM for lipid metabolism (adipose triglyceride lipase, acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member, glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase, and hydroxyacyl-Coenzyme A dehydrogenase) and fatty acid uptake (fatty acid translocase and lipoprotein lipase) at both P1 and P2.
