phosphatidic acid:

see phospholipidphospholipid
, lipid that in its simplest form is composed of glycerol bonded to two fatty acids and a phosphate group. The resulting compound called phosphatidic acid contains a region (the fatty acid component) that is fat-soluble along with a region (the charged phosphate

Previous studies have shown that soy-derived phosphatidic acid (PA), lyso-PA, or phosphatidylserine (PS) can stimulate a robust increase in mTOR signaling; however, soy-derived PC was not effective [21].

Then, 1-acyl-glycerol-3-phosphate acyltransferase (AGPAT) catalyzes the second acylation converting MAG-P in 1,2-diacylglycerol phosphate (phosphatidic acid (PA-P)), which in turn is dephosphorylated to 1,2-diacylglycerol (DAG) by phosphatidic acid phosphatase (PAP or lipin).
