Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits ceramide phosphoethanolamine synthase activity and sphingomyelin synthase activity. Involved in ceramide biosynthetic process and negative regulation of extrinsic apoptotic signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the Golgi apparatus; integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and integral component of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human SGMS1 (sphingomyelin synthase 1).
