Alkylglycerone phosphate synthase (EC 2.5.1.26, alkyldihydroxyacetonephosphate synthase, alkyldihydroxyacetone phosphate synthetase, alkyl DHAP synthetase, alkyl-DHAP, dihydroxyacetone-phosphate acyltransferase, DHAP-AT) is an enzyme associated with Type 3 Rhizomelic chondrodysplasia punctata.[1][2] This enzyme catalyses the following chemical reaction

1-acyl-glycerone 3-phosphate + a long-chain alcohol \rightleftharpoons an alkyl-glycerone 3-phosphate + a long-chain acid anion
