General annotation (Comments)

Function

Highly specific for ethanolamine phosphorylation. Does not have choline kinase activity. Ref.4

Catalytic activity

ATP + ethanolamine = ADP + O-phosphoethanolamine. Ref.4

Pathway

Phospholipid metabolism; phosphatidylethanolamine biosynthesis; phosphatidylethanolamine from ethanolamine: step 1/3.

Tissue specificity

Expressed in testis and liver. Low expression in ovary and kidney. Ref.3 Ref.4 Ref.5

Developmental stage

The expression is restricted to the gonads during the sex determination period and throughout embryogenesis. In developing testis, the expression is found only in the Sertoli cells. The expression is strongest at day 11.5, more intense in the testis than the ovary. From 12.5 dpc the expression in the ovary is reduced and disappears. The expression at day 13.5 dpc is restricted to the testis cords. Ref.3

Disruption phenotype

No visible phenotype in adults. No significant effect is seen on liver phospholipid metabolism, neural development, or testicular function. No abnormalities are detected in embryonic and adult testis morphology, differentiation, function, or fertility. Ref.4 shows maternal-specific failure to support late embryonic development, resulting in reduced perinatal size and survival and suggesting compromised placental function. Ref.4 Ref.5

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the choline/ethanolamine kinase family.

Caution

According to Ref.4, disruption of the gene causes increased prevalence of placental thrombosis, reduced litter size and increased pup mortality. No such effect was observed by Ref.5. One possible explanation lies in the fact that Ref.4 observed a remarkable 100% survival of control pups and 16% mortality for mutant pups, while Ref.5 observed 16% mortality for both wild-type and mutant pups. According to Ref.5, the construct used in Ref.4 may lead to expression of a truncated transcript that might have deleterious effects.

Alternative products

This entry describes 2 isoforms produced by alternative splicing. [Align] [Select]
Isoform 1 (identifier: A7MCT6-1)

This isoform has been chosen as the 'canonical' sequence. All positional information in this entry refers to it. This is also the sequence that appears in the downloadable versions of the entry.
Isoform 2 (identifier: A7MCT6-2)

The sequence of this isoform differs from the canonical sequence as follows:
     290-385: VNVVDYSRYP...PQVSALEMPK → RGGLL
