Glycerol-3-Phosphate Acyltransferase from Squash Chloroplasts: Protein Characterization by Purification and cDNA Cloning
Acyl-(acyl-carrier protein):glycero1-3-phosphate acyltransferase (glycero-P acyltransferase) in higher-plant chloroplasts transfers the acyl group from acyl-(acy 1-carrier protein) to the C-1 position of glycerol 3-phosphate to synthesize 1-acylglycerol 3-phosphate. Since this reaction is the first step of glycerolipid synthesis in the chloroplasts, it is of special interest to study this enzyme.
