Abstract [en]

The mitochondrial enzyme 1-acyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (mtGPAT1) catalyzes a rate-limiting step in triacylglycerol and glycerophospholipid biosynthesis, which can be modulated by protein kinases in cell free analyses. We report that treatment of primary rat adipocytes with insulin acutely affects the activity of mtGPAT1 by increasing VMAX and KM for the substrates glycerol-3-phosphate and palmitoyl-CoA. Proteolytic cleavage of isolated mitochondrial membranes and mass spectrometric peptide sequencing identify in vivo phosphorylation of serine 632 and serine 639 in mtGPAT1. These phosphorylation sites correspond to casein kinase-2 consensus sequences and are highly conserved in chordate animal, but not fly, fungal or plant, mtGPAT1. © 2007 Elsevier Inc.
