Gene: Sgms2 (sphingomyelin synthase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Sgms2
Name: sphingomyelin synthase 2
Description: Exhibits ceramide phosphoethanolamine synthase activity and sphingomyelin synthase activity. Involved in ceramide biosynthetic process; ceramide phosphoethanolamine biosynthetic process; and sphingomyelin biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to the integral component of Golgi membrane; integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane; and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including hindlimb; jaw; nervous system; and skeleton. Orthologous to human SGMS2 (sphingomyelin synthase 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 4933405A16Rik; 5133401H06Rik; AI854299; phosphatidylcholine:ceramide cholinephosphotransferase 2; RIKEN cDNA 5133401H06 gene
