The enzymes 1,2-diacylglycerol cholinephosphotrans­ferase (CPT) and lysophosphatidylcholine acyltransferase (LPCAT) are important in lipid metabolism in soybean seeds. Thus, understand­ing the genes that encode these enzymes may enable their modification and aid the improvement of soybean oil quality. In soybean, the genes encoding these enzymes have not been completely described; there­fore, this study aimed to identify, characterize, and analyze the in silico expression of these genes in soybean.
