This gene codes for a choline/ethanolaminephosphotransferase, which functions in the synthesis of choline- or ethanolamine- containing phospholipids. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2016]
GeneCards Summary for CEPT1 Gene
CEPT1 (Choline/Ethanolamine Phosphotransferase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Glycerophospholipid biosynthesis and Synthesis of PC.

An important paralog of this gene is CHPT1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CEPT1 Gene
Catalyzes both phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis from CDP-choline and CDP-ethanolamine, respectively. Involved in protein-dependent process of phospholipid transport to distribute phosphatidyl choline to the lumenal surface. Has a higher cholinephosphotransferase activity than ethanolaminephosphotransferase activity.
