ORGANISM
Saccharomyces cerevisiae (strain ATCC 204508 / S288c)
FAMILY
DESCRIPTION
Also known as DGAT2_YEAST, DGA1. Catalyzes the terminal and only committed step in triacylglycerol synthesis by using diacylglycerol and fatty acyl CoA as substrates. Required for storage lipid synthesis. May be involved in lipid particle synthesis from the endoplasmic reticulum and ergosterol biosynthesis. Also has monoacylglycerol acyltransferase (MGAT) activity, catalyzing the acyl-CoA-dependent esterification of monoacylglycerol to diacylglycerol.
