Accepted name: galactosylacylglycerol O-acyltransferase

Reaction: an acyl-[acyl-carrier protein] + a 2-acyl-3-O-(β-D-galactosyl)-sn-glycerol = an [acyl-carrier protein] + a 1,2-diacyl-3-O-(β-D-galactosyl)-sn-glycerol

Other name(s): acyl-acyl-carrier protein: lysomonogalactosyldiacylglycerol acyltransferase; acyl-ACP:lyso-MGDG acyltransferase

Systematic name: acyl-[acyl-carrier protein]:D-galactosylacylglycerol O-acyltransferase

Comments: Transfers long-chain acyl groups to the sn-1 position of the glycerol residue.
