FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] The protein encoded by this gene is an enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of diacylglycerol from 2-monoacylglycerol and fatty acyl-CoA. The encoded protein is important in the uptake of dietary fat by the small intestine. This protein forms a complex with diacylglycerol O-acyltransferase 2 in the endoplasmic reticulum, and this complex catalyzes the synthesis of triacylglycerol. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a null allele exhibit resistance to diet induced obesity, hyperinsulinemia, hyperlipidemia, and steatosis with decreased lipid absorption and increased oxygen consumption when fed a high fat diet. [provided by MGI curators]
