Phosphocholine Cytidyltransferase Definition


Phosphocholine Cytidyltransferase:

An enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of cytidylate (CMP) to choline phosphate to form CDPcholine. It is the rate-limiting enzyme in the choline pathway for the biosynthesis of phosphatidylcholine. Its activity is increased by glucocorticoids. EC

Synonym: phosphorylcholine cytidyl transferase, ctp phosphorylcholine cytidyltransferase, ctp phosphocholine cytidylyl transferase, choline-phosphate cytidylyltransferase, cdp choline synthetase, ctp phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase.
