- CDP-choline + N-acylsphingosine CMP + sphingomyelin
This enzyme belongs to the family of transferases, specifically those transferring non-standard substituted phosphate groups. The systematic name of this enzyme class is CDP-choline:N-acylsphingosine cholinephosphotransferase. This enzyme is also called phosphorylcholine-ceramide transferase. This enzyme participates in sphingolipid metabolism.
