Gene: DGAT1 (diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DGAT1
Name: diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 1
RGD ID: 731052
Description: Exhibits diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase activity. Involved in monoacylglycerol biosynthetic process; triglyceride biosynthetic process; and very-low-density lipoprotein particle assembly. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum membrane; integral component of membrane; and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Implicated in cardiomyopathy and congenital diarrhea 7 with exudative enteropathy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ACAT related gene product 1; ACAT-related gene product 1; acyl coenzyme A:cholesterol acyltransferase related gene 1; acyl-CoA retinol O-fatty-acyltransferase; acyl-CoA:diacylglycerol acyltransferase; ARAT; ARGP1; DGAT; diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase (mouse) homolog; diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase homolog; diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase homolog 1; DIAR7; diglyceride acyltransferase; retinol O-fatty-acyltransferase
