Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase activity and glycerol-3-phosphate O-acyltransferase activity. Involved in phosphatidic acid biosynthetic process and piRNA biosynthetic process. Acts upstream of or within glycerol-3-phosphate metabolic process and triglyceride biosynthetic process. Located in mitochondrion. Is expressed in germ cell of testis; interstitium of the testis; and tunica albuginea of testis. Orthologous to human GPAT2 (glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase 2, mitochondrial).
