diacylglycerol

Glycerol substituted on the 1 and 2 hydroxyl groups with long chain fatty acyl residues. DAG is a normal intermediate in the biosynthesis of phosphatidyl phospholipids and is released from them by phospholipase C activity. DAG from phosphatidyl inositol polyphosphates is important in signal transduction. Elevated levels of DAG in membranes activate protein kinase C by stabilizing its catalytically active complex with membrane-bound phosphatidyl serine and calcium. ...

diacylglycerol

(DAG) Type: Term Pronunciation: dī′as-il′glis′ĕr-ōl Definitions: 1. Diglyceride; glycerol with two esterified acyl moieties, either 1,3-diacylglycerol or 1,2-diacylglycerol; if the two acyl groups are nonidentical, there are four possible isomers of 1,2-diacylglycerol; 1,2-diacylglycerol is an intermediate in...

Diacylglycerol

[DAG] Diacylglycerol (DAG) oil is a cooking oil in which the ratio of triglycerides to DAG is shifted to contain mostly DAG, unlike conventional cooking oils, which are rich in TAG. Vegetable DAG oil, for example, contains 80% DAG and is used as a 1:1 replacement for liquid vegetable oils in all applications. == How it Works == DAG (Diacylg...
