Gene: Samd8 (sterile alpha motif domain containing 8) Mus musculus
Symbol: Samd8
Name: sterile alpha motif domain containing 8
Description: Exhibits ceramide phosphoethanolamine synthase activity. Involved in ceramide biosynthetic process and ceramide phosphoethanolamine biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the endoplasmic reticulum; integral component of organelle membrane; and integral component of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human SAMD8 (sterile alpha motif domain containing 8); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; aflatoxin B1; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 1110053F04Rik; 1700010P07Rik; ceramide phosphoethanolamine synthase; CPE synthase; GrailEXP prediction; MGC118303; SAM domain-containing protein 8; SMSr; sphingomyelin synthase-related protein 1; sterile alpha motif domain-containing 8; sterile alpha motif domain-containing protein 8
