PISD gene

phosphatidylserine decarboxylase

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

From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the conversion of phosphatidylserine to phosphatidylethanolamine in the inner mitochondrial membrane. The encoded protein is active in phospholipid metabolism and interorganelle trafficking of phosphatidylserine. [provided by RefSeq, May 2016]

From UniProt:

Catalyzes the formation of phosphatidylethanolamine (PtdEtn) from phosphatidylserine (PtdSer). Plays a central role in phospholipid metabolism and in the interorganelle trafficking of phosphatidylserine.
