Phosphatidate cytidylyltransferase (EC 188.8.131.52) [1,2,3] (also known as CDP-diacylglycerol synthase) (CDS) is the enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of
CDP-diacylglycerol from CTP and phosphatidate (PA). CDP-diacylglycerol is an
important branch point intermediate in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic
organisms. CDS is a membrane-bound enzyme. As a signature pattern we selected
a conserved region located in the C-terminal part.
