Phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase (EC: [PMID: 2995359, PMID: 8557688, PMID: 9083091] (also known as CDP- diacylglycerol synthase) (CDS) is the enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of CDP-diacylglycerol from CTP and phosphatidate (PA): CTP + phosphatidate = diphosphate + CDP-diacylglycerol CDP-diacylglycerol is an important branch point intermediate in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms. CDS is a membrane-bound enzyme.
