The 1-acylglycerol-3-phosphate-O-acyltransferase 2 enzyme (AGPAT2) catalyzes the acylation of lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) into phosphatidic acid (PA), which is a precursor for the synthesis of triacylglycerol and phospholipid (1,2). AGPAT2 is highly expressed in adipose tissues, liver, and skeletal muscle (3). The induced knockdown of AGPAT2 expression results in decreased expression of adipogenic proteins and delayed expression of adipogenic marker proteins, suggesting that AGPAT2 plays an important role in adipocyte growth and differentiation (4). Mutations in the corresponding AGPAT2 gene cause autosomal recessive congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 1 (CGL1), also described as Berardinelli-Seip syndrome. Patients with CGL1 are born without detectable white adipose tissue and tend to develop severe insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, and type 2 diabetes during childhood (5,6).
