Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Enables ethanolamine-phosphate cytidylyltransferase activity. Involved in phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthetic process. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary spastic paraplegia. Orthologous to human PCYT2 (phosphate cytidylyltransferase 2, ethanolamine).
