Accepted name: glycerol-3-phosphate 1-O-acyltransferase
Reaction: acyl-CoA + sn-glycerol 3-phosphate = CoA + 1-acyl-sn-glycerol 3-phosphate
Other name(s): α-glycerophosphate acyltransferase; 3-glycerophosphate acyltransferase; ACP:sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase; glycerol 3-phosphate acyltransferase; glycerol phosphate acyltransferase; glycerol phosphate transacylase; glycerophosphate acyltransferase; glycerophosphate transacylase; sn-glycerol 3-phosphate acyltransferase; sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase; glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase (ambiguous)
Systematic name: acyl-CoA:sn-glycerol-3-phosphate 1-O-acyltransferase
Comments: Acyl-[acyl-carrier protein] can also act as acyl donor. The enzyme acts only on derivatives of fatty acids of chain length larger than C10.
