Effects of bisphenol A on lipid metabolism in rare minnow Gobiocypris rarus.
China. In Comp Biochem Physiol C Toxicol Pharmacol, 19 Nov 2015
To evaluate the effects of BPA on lipid metabolism, we determine the hepato-somatic index, triglyceride contents in the liver and serum, the activities of acetyl-CoA carboxylase (ACC), fatty acid synthase (FASN), carnitine palmitoyltransferase (CPT1), and glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (GPAT) enzymes and the mRNA expression of acaca, acacb, fasn, gpat1 and cpt1α in Gobiocypris rarus after exposure to BPA for 28 days.

Sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (GPAT) catalyzes the acylation at sn-1 position of glycerol-3-phosphate to produce lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) in an acyl-CoA or acyl-ACP-dependent manner, which is the initial and rate-determining step of TAG biosynthetic pathway.
Biochemistry, physiology, and genetics of GPAT, AGPAT, and lipin enzymes in triglyceride synthesis.
Los Angeles, United States. In Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab, 2009
The molecular identification of genes encoding enzymes that catalyze steps in TAG biosynthesis from glycerol 3-phosphate has revealed an unexpected number of protein isoforms of the glycerol phosphate acyltransferase (GPAT), acylglycerolphosphate acyltransferase (AGPAT), and lipin (phosphatidate phosphatase) families that appear to catalyze similar biochemical reactions.

All chaperones (XBP1, ATF6, HSP70, GRP98, GP96, Calnexin and Calreticulin) were upregulated in the graft biopsies of HCV positive patients, irrespectively of the serum HCV-RNA titer.

Glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (GPAT) initiates the synthesis of triacylglycerol and phospholipids and, in the process, regulates the formation of several lipid metabolites known to be intracellular signaling molecules.
