Function: Possesses both acyltransferase and acetyltransferase activities. Activity is calcium-independent. Mediates the conversion of 1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (LPC) into phosphatidylcholine (PC). Displays a clear preference for saturated fatty acyl-CoAs, and 1-myristoyl or 1-palmitoyl LPC as acyl donors and acceptors, respectively. May synthesize phosphatidylcholine in pulmonary surfactant, thereby playing a pivotal role in respiratory physiology.
Catalytic activity: Acyl-CoA + 1-acyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine = CoA + 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine. Acetyl-CoA + 1-alkyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine = CoA + 2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycero-3- phosphocholine.
Pathway: Lipid metabolism; phospholipid metabolism.
Cellular location: Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Lipid droplet. Note=May adopt a monotopic topology when embedded in the lipid monolayer of the lipid droplet, with both termini exposed to the cytoplasm.
