In enzymology, a 1-alkenylglycerophosphocholine O-acyltransferase (EC 2.3.1.104) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

acyl-CoA + 1-alkenylglycerophosphocholine \rightleftharpoons CoA + 1-alkenyl-2-acylglycerophosphocholine

Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are acyl-CoA and 1-alkenylglycerophosphocholine, whereas its two products are CoA and 1-alkenyl-2-acylglycerophosphocholine.

This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those acyltransferases transferring groups other than aminoacyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is acyl-CoA:1-alkenylglycerophosphocholine O-acyltransferase. This enzyme participates in ether lipid metabolism.
