PCYT2 gene

phosphate cytidylyltransferase 2, ethanolamine

The information on this page was automatically extracted from online scientific databases.

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes an enzyme that catalyzes the formation of CDP-ethanolamine from CTP and phosphoethanolamine in the Kennedy pathway of phospholipid synthesis. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

From UniProt:

Plays an important role in the biosynthesis of the phospholipid phosphatidylethanolamine. Catalyzes the formation of CDP-ethanolamine.
