« Hide More detailed introduction

Following translocation from the ER to the Golgi under the influence of the ceramide transfer protein, sphingomyelin synthases allow the formation of sphingomyelin by the transfer of phosphocholine from the phospholipid phosphatidylcholine.

Sphingomyelin synthase-related protein 1 is structurally related but lacks sphingomyelin synthase activity.
