ⓘ Alkylglycerone phosphate synthase

Alkylglycerone phosphate synthase is an enzyme associated with Type 3 Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata. This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

1-acyl-glycerone 3-phosphate + a long-chain alcohol ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } an alkyl-glycerone 3-phosphate + a long-chain acid anion
