Function Possesses both acyltransferase and acetyltransferase activities. Activity is calcium-dependent. Involved in platelet-activating factor (PAF) biosynthesis by catalyzing the conversion of the PAF precursor, 1-O-alkyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (lyso-PAF) into 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (PAF). Also converts lyso-PAF to 1-O-alkyl-2-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (PC), a major component of cell membranes and a PAF precursor. Under resting conditions, acyltransferase activity is preferred. Upon acute inflammatory stimulus, acetyltransferase activity is enhanced and PAF synthesis increases. Also catalyzes the conversion of 1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine to 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine. Involved in the regulation of lipid droplet number and size.
Subcellular Location Endoplasmic reticulum membrane, Single-pass type II membrane protein, Golgi apparatus membrane, Single-pass type II membrane protein, Lipid droplet
Protein Families 1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase family
