SPTLC2 [ENSP00000216484]

Serine palmitoyltransferase, long chain base subunit 2; Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT). The heterodimer formed with LCB1/SPTLC1 constitutes the catalytic core. The composition of the serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT) complex determines the substrate preference. The SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SPTSSA complex shows a strong preference for C16-CoA substrate, while the SPTLC1-SPTLC2-SPTSSB complex displays a preference for C18-CoA substrate; Belongs to the class-II pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family.
