CDP-alcohol phosphatidyltransferase (IPR000462)

Short name: CDP-OH_P_trans

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


A number of phosphatidyltransferases, which are all involved in phospholipid biosynthesis and that share the property of catalyzing the displacement of CMP from a CDP-alcohol by a second alcohol with formation of a phosphodiester bond and concomitant breaking of a phosphoride anhydride bond share a conserved sequence region [PMID: 3031032, PMID: 1848238]. These enzymes are proteins of 200 to 400 amino acid residues. The conserved region contains three aspartic acid residues and is located in the N-terminal section of the sequences.
