Gene Symbol:
SPTLC2 Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
serine palmitoyltransferase long chain base subunit 2
HSN1C, LCB2, LCB2A, NSAN1C, SPT2, hLCB2a, serine palmitoyltransferase 2, LCB 2, SPT 2, long chain base biosynthesis protein 2a, serine palmitoyltransferase, subunit II, serine-palmitoyl-CoA transferase 2
Genomic Location:
Chr 14: 77043023-77152863
This gene encodes a long chain base subunit of serine palmitoyltransferase. Serine palmitoyltransferase, which consists of two different subunits, is the key enzyme in sphingolipid biosynthesis. It catalyzes the pyridoxal-5-prime-phosphate-dependent condensation of L-serine and palmitoyl-CoA to 3-oxosphinganine. Mutations in this gene were identifi...
