Gene: Dgat1 (diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Dgat1
Name: diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1
RGD ID: 628673
Description: Enables diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity; diacylglycerol binding activity; and fatty acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including insulin secretion; positive regulation of hepatic stellate cell activation; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Predicted to be located in intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and membrane. Predicted to be active in endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Biomarker of chronic kidney disease and nephrotic syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiomyopathy and congenital diarrhea 7 with exudative enteropathy. Orthologous to human DGAT1 (diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1); PARTICIPATES IN retinol metabolic pathway; vitamin A deficiency pathway; glycerolipid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 5-methoxy-2-\{[(4-methoxy-3,5-dimethylpyridin-2-yl)methyl]sulfinyl\}-1H-benzimidazole.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED

gene_expression expressed in isolated islets and insulin-secreting cells 628375
gene_function catalyzes the last and only committed step of triglyceride synthesis 628375
gene_mutations_overexpression overexpression in islets with elevated glucose levels for 72 h markedly reduces insulin secretion in response to glucose, but responds normally to the nonglucose secretagogues glyburide and potassium chloride 628375
gene_process overexpression in islets causes a significant increase in the incorporation of palmitate into triglyceride without any detectable change in the rate of oxidation of either palmitate or glucose 628375
