GPAT2 [ENSP00000389395]

Glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase 2, mitochondrial; Esterifies acyl-group from acyl-ACP to the sn-1 position of glycerol-3-phosphate, an essential step in glycerolipid biosynthesis. Required for primary processing step during piRNA biosynthesis. Molecular mechanisms by which it promotes piRNA biosynthesis are unclear and do not involve its acyltransferase activity; Belongs to the GPAT/DAPAT family.
