Choline phosphotransferase catalyzes the final step in the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine by the transfer of phosphocholine from CDP-choline to diacylglycerol. The synthesis of phosphatidyl ethanolamine by ethanolamine phosphotransferase occurs using an analogous reaction. This gene codes for a choline/ethanolamine phosphotransferase. The protein can synthesize either choline- or ethanolamine- containing phospholipids. Two alternatively spliced transcripts encoding the same isoform have been identified.
