Domain

Sphingomyelin synthase-like domain (IPR025749)

Short name: Sphingomyelin_synth-like_dom

Domain relationships

None.

Description

This domain is found in sphingomyelin synthase (also known as phosphatidylcholine:ceramide cholinephosphotransferase), and other proteins. Sphingomyelin synthase is a bidirectional lipid cholinephosphotransferase capable of converting phosphatidylcholine (PC) and ceramide to sphingomyelin (SM) and diacylglycerol (DAG) and vice versa [PMID: 14685263]. This domain is closely related to the C-terminal a region of phosphatidic acid phosphatase type 2 (PAP2).
