Acyltransferase which mediates the conversion of lysophosphatidylinositol (1-acylglycerophosphatidylinositol or LPI) into phosphatidylinositol (1,2-diacyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphoinositol or PI) (LPIAT activity). Prefers arachidonoyl-CoA as the acyl donor. Lysophospholipid acyltransferases (LPLATs) catalyze the reacylation step of the phospholipid remodeling pathway also known as the Lands cycle.
Overexpressed in metastatic breast and bladder carcinomas relative to normal breast epithelium and urothelium.
Lipid metabolism; phospholipid metabolism.
Belongs to the membrane-bound acyltransferase family.
