EC 3.1.1.71     
Accepted name: acetylalkylglycerol acetylhydrolase
Reaction: 2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol + H2O = 1-alkyl-sn-glycerol + acetate
Other name(s): alkylacetylglycerol acetylhydrolase
Systematic name: 2-acetyl-1-alkyl-sn-glycerol acetylhydrolase
Comments: Hydrolysis of the acetyl group from the 1-alkyl-2-acetyl and 1-alkyl-3-acetyl substrates occurs at apparently identical rates. The enzyme from Erlich ascites cells is membrane-bound. It differs from lipoprotein lipase (EC 3.1.1.34) since 1,2-diacetyl-sn-glycerols are not substrates. It also differs from EC 3.1.1.47, 1-acetyl-2-alkyl-glycerophosphocholine esterase.
