LPCAT2, also known as Lysophosphatidylcholine Acyltransferase 2, is an enzyme crucial for the biosynthesis of phospholipids, essential components of cellular membranes. Positioned primarily within the endoplasmic reticulum of cells, LPCAT2 plays a pivotal role in regulating lipid metabolism and maintaining membrane integrity. One of the key functions of LPCAT2 is its involvement in the Lands cycle, a process essential for the remodeling of phospholipids. LPCAT2 catalyzes the acylation of lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) molecules, converting them into phosphatidylcholine (PC), a major phospholipid constituent of cell membranes. This enzymatic activity is crucial for generating membrane phospholipids with specific fatty acid compositions, which influence membrane...
