Breakdown products of phosphoinositides are ubiquitoussecond messengers that function downstream of many Gprotein-coupled receptors and tyrosine kinases regulating cellgrowth, calcium metabolism, and protein kinase C activity. Thisgene encodes an enzyme which regulates the amount ofphosphatidylinositol available for signaling by catalyzing theconversion of phosphatidic acid to CDP-diacylglycerol. This enzymeis an integral membrane protein localized to two subcellulardomains, the matrix side of the inner mitochondrial membrane whereit is thought to be involved in the synthesis ofphosphatidylglycerol and cardiolipin and the cytoplasmic side ofthe endoplasmic reticulum where it functions inphosphatidylinositol biosynthesis. Two genes encoding this enzymehave been identified in humans, one mapping to human chromosome4q21 and a second to 20p13.
