24498038 Data show that missense mutation c.299G>A changes serine in the acyltransferase NHX4D motif of AGPAT2, and intronic c.493-1G>C mutation destroy a splicing site that leads to exon 4 skipping and deletion of whole AGPAT2 substrate binding domain.
24205284 the ability of LPAAT-beta to regulate mTOR function
23578572 miR-24 may play an important role in inhibiting osteosarcoma growth through suppression of LPAATbeta.
22902344 novel nonsense a missense mutations were found in two patients with congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 1.
22872237 Data suggest that AGPAT2 regulates adipogenesis through modulation of lipid metabolism/signal transduction, altering normal activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/protooncogene c-Akt and PPARgamma signaling in early stage of adipogenesis.
21873652 the role of AGPAT1 or AGPAT2 in liver lipogenesis is minimal and that accumulation of liver fat is primarily a consequence of insulin resistance
21176343 lpaat beta gene overexpression exists in both AML and CML patients. lpaat beta produced by AML cells probably plays an important role in abnormal proliferation and drug-resistance of AML cells.
21152068 Lysophosphatidic acid acyltransferase beta (LPAATbeta) promotes the tumor growth of human osteosarcoma
19278620 Study showed that the cellular level of lysophosphatidic acid was increased in AGPAT2 deficient cells.
19226263 We have demonstrated four novel mutations of the BSCL2 and AGPAT2 genes responsible for Berardinelli-Seip syndrome and Brunzell syndrome (AGPAT2-related syndrome).
