Lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferase

Gene

Functioni

Acyltransferase which mediates the conversion of 1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (LPC) into phosphatidylcholine (PC). Displays a broad LPC fatty acyl chain substrate specificity utilizing LPC molecules ranging in length from C-10 to C-20. Does not utilize other lysolipids than LPC as acceptor. Also shows acyl-CoA-independent acyltransferase activity. Required for normal phospholipid content of mitochondrial membranes. Involved in the remodeling of the acyl groups of cardiolipin in the mitochondrial inner membrane, which affects the assembly and stability of respiratory chain complex IV and its supercomplex forms.3 Publications

Miscellaneous

Present with 1340 molecules/cell in log phase SD medium.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

Acyl-CoA + 1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine = CoA + 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine.

Enzyme regulationi

Inhibited by zinc and o-phenanthroline.1 Publication
