Accepted name: alkylglycerone-phosphate synthase
Reaction: 1-acyl-glycerone 3-phosphate + a long-chain alcohol = an alkyl-glycerone 3-phosphate + a long-chain acid anion
Glossary: a long-chain alcohol = an alcohol derived from a fatty acid with an aliphatic chain of 13-22 carbons.
Other name(s): alkyldihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase; alkyldihydroxyacetone phosphate synthetase; alkyl DHAP synthetase; alkyl-DHAP; dihydroxyacetone-phosphate acyltransferase (ambiguous); DHAP-AT
Systematic name: 1-acyl-glycerone-3-phosphate:long-chain-alcohol O-3-phospho-2-oxopropanyltransferase
Comments: The ester-linked fatty acid of the substrate is cleaved and replaced by a long-chain alcohol in an ether linkage.
