Aminoalcoholphosphotransferases (AAPTases) utilize diacylglycerols and cytidine diphosphate (CDP)-aminoalcohols as substrates in the synthesis of the abundant membrane lipids phosphatidylcholine and phosphatidylethanolamine. A soybean cDNA encoding an AAPTase that demonstrates high levels of CDP-choline:sn-1,2-diacylglycerol cholinephosphotransferase activity was isolated by complementation of a yeast strain deficient in this function and was designated AAPT1. The deduced amino acid sequence of… CONTINUE READING
