High impact information on GPAT


Biological context of GPAT

  • The aim of the current study was to determine the effects of age, muscle type, and IGF-II genotype (Apat, mutant allele vs. Gpat, wild-type allele) on muscle proteolytic and lipolytic enzyme activities [6].

Associations of GPAT with chemical compounds

  • An assay of up to 10 min was linear with incubation time and measured the initial incorporation of glycerol-3-phosphate into the pathway (GPAT); this incorporation was mostly into phospholipids [7].
