Provides CDP-diacylglycerol an important precursor for the synthesis of phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns), phosphatidylglycerol, and cardiolipin. Overexpression may amplify cellular signaling responses from cytokines. May also play an important role in the signal transduction mechanism of retina and neural cells.
Expressed in adult tissues such as placenta, brain, small intestine, ovary, testis and prostate. Highly expressed in fetal kidney, lung and brain. Lower level in fetal liver.
Phospholipid metabolism; CDP-diacylglycerol biosynthesis; CDP-diacylglycerol from sn-glycerol 3-phosphate: step 3/3.
Belongs to the CDS family.
Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Cytoplasmic aspect of the endoplasmic reticulum.
