GeneCards Summary for CPTP Gene
CPTP (Ceramide-1-Phosphate Transfer Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Sphingolipid metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include phospholipid binding and glycolipid binding. An important paralog of this gene is GLTPD2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CPTP Gene
Mediates the intracellular transfer of ceramide-1-phosphate between organelle membranes and the cell membrane. Required for normal structure of the Golgi stacks. Can bind phosphoceramides with a variety of aliphatic chains, but has a preference for lipids with saturated C16:0 or monounsaturated C18:1 aliphatic chains, and is inefficient with phosphoceramides containing lignoceryl (C24:0). Plays a role in the regulation of the cellular levels of ceramide-1-phosphate, and thereby contributes to the regulation of phospholipase PLA2G4A activity and the release of arachidonic acid. Has no activity with galactosylceramide, lactosylceramide, sphingomyelin, phosphatidylcholine, phosphatidic acid and ceramide.
