ⓘ Diglyceride acyltransferase

Diglyceride acyltransferase, DGAT, catalyzes the formation of triglycerides from diacylglycerol and Acyl-CoA. The reaction catalyzed by DGAT is considered the terminal and only committed step in triglyceride synthesis and to be essential for intestinal absorption and adipose tissue formation.

This protein is homologous to other membrane-bound o-acyltransferases.
