In enzymology, a lysolecithin acylmutase (EC 5.4.1.1) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction

2-lysolecithin 3-lysolecithin

Hence, this enzyme has one substrate, 2-lysolecithin, and one product, 3-lysolecithin.

This enzyme belongs to the family of isomerases, specifically those intramolecular transferases transferring acyl groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is lysolecithin 2,3-acylmutase. This enzyme is also called lysolecithin migratase.
