Description

Ethanolamine kinase; primarily responsible for phosphatidylethanolamine synthesis via the CDP-ethanolamine pathway; exhibits some choline kinase activity, thus contributing to phosphatidylcholine synthesis via the CDP-choline pathway; EKI1 has a paralog, CKI1, that arose from the whole genome duplication [Source:SGD;Acc:S000002554]
