Summary:
2-Acylglycerophosphoethanolamine (2-acyl-GPE) acyltransferase and acyl-acyl carrier protein (acyl-ACP) synthetase are dual catalytic activities encoded by the aas gene. Both enzymes participate in membrane phospholipid turnover and the uptake and incorporation of exogenous 2-acyllysophospholipids. The function of 2-acyl-GPE acyltransferase is to regenerate phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn) from 2-acyl-GPE formed by transacylation reactions or phospholipase A1 action. In the process enzyme-bound ACP is also regenerated. [Jackowski94, Hsu91]

Cofactors or Prosthetic Groups: Mg2+ [Rock84]

Inhibitors (Unknown Mechanism): Li+ [Comment 2]

Summary:
2-Acylglycerophosphoethanolamine (2-acyl-GPE) acyltransferase and acyl-acyl carrier protein (acyl-ACP) synthetase are dual catalytic activities encoded by the aas gene. Both enzymes participate in membrane phospholipid turnover and the uptake and incorporation of exogenous 2-acyllysophospholipids. Acyl-ACP synthetase functions to ligate free fatty acids, with lengths of C-8 to C-18, to ACP. [Jackowski94, Hsu91, Rock79]

Cofactors or Prosthetic Groups: Mg2+ [Comment 4]

Inhibitors (Unknown Mechanism): a salt
