Accepted name: apolipoprotein N-acyltransferase
Reaction: a phosphoglycerolipid + an [apolipoprotein]-S-1,2-diacyl-sn-glyceryl-L-cysteine = a 1-lyso-phosphoglycerolipid + a [lipoprotein]-N-acyl-S-1,2-diacyl-sn-glyceryl-L-cysteine
Other name(s): lnt (gene name); Lnt
Systematic name: phosphoglyceride:[apolipoprotein]-S-1,2-diacyl-sn-glyceryl-L-cysteine N-acyltransferase
Comments: This bacterial enzyme transfers a fatty acid from a membrane phospholipid to form an amide linkage with the N-terminal cysteine residue of apolipoproteins, generating a triacylated molecule.
