  • Function

    Essential acyltransferase that catalyzes the terminal and only committed step in triacylglycerol synthesis by using diacylglycerol and fatty acyl CoA as substrates. Required for synthesis and storage of intracellular triglycerides. Probably plays a central role in cytosolic lipid accumulation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Predominantly expressed in liver and white adipose tissue. Expressed at lower level in mammary gland, testis and peripheral blood leukocytes. Expressed in sebaceous glands of normal skin but decreased psoriatic skin.
  • Pathway

    Glycerolipid metabolism; triacylglycerol biosynthesis.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the diacylglycerol acyltransferase family.
  • Cellular localization

    Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.
