Phosphate acyltransferases
SMART accession number:SM00563
Description: Function in phospholipid biosynthesis and have either glycerolphosphate, 1-acylglycerolphosphate, or 2-acylglycerolphosphoethanolamine acyltransferase activities. Tafazzin, the product of the gene mutated in patients with Barth syndrome, is a member of this family.
Interpro abstract (IPR002123):

This family contains acyltransferases involved in phospholipid biosynthesis and other proteins of unknown function [ (PUBMED:9259571) ]. This domain is found in tafazzins, defects in which are the cause of Barth syndrome; a severe inherited disorder which is often fatal in childhood and is characterised by cardiac and skeletal abnormalities. Phospholipid/glycerol acyltransferase is not found in the viruses or the archaea and is under represented in the bacteria. Bacterial glycerol-phosphate acyltransferases are involved in membrane biogenesis since they use fatty acid chains to form the first membrane phospholipids [ (PUBMED:18369234) ].

GO function:transferase activity, transferring acyl groups (GO:0016746)
