Accepted name: dolichol O-acyltransferase

Reaction: palmitoyl-CoA + dolichol = CoA + dolichyl palmitate

Other name(s): acyl-CoA:dolichol acyltransferase

Systematic name: palmitoyl-CoA:dolichol O-palmitoyltransferase

Comments: Other acyl-CoAs can also act, but more slowly. α-Saturated dolichols are acylated more rapidly than the α-unsaturated analogues.
