Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits 2-acylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity and diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including acylglycerol metabolic process; fatty acid homeostasis; and long-chain fatty-acyl-CoA metabolic process. Localizes to the integral component of membrane and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiomyopathy; congenital diarrhea; and congenital diarrhea 7 with exudative enteropathy. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; genitourinary system; integument; liver; and yolk sac. Orthologous to human DGAT1 (diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1).
