Gene: Chka (choline kinase alpha) Mus musculus
Symbol: Chka
Name: choline kinase alpha
Description: Exhibits choline kinase activity; cholinesterase activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in phosphatidylcholine biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm. Is expressed in intestine; metanephros; neural retina; and telencephalon. Orthologous to human CHKA (choline kinase alpha); PARTICIPATES IN glycerophospholipid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Chetk-alpha; Chk; ChoK; choline/ethanolamine kinase alpha; choline/ethanolamine kinase-alpha; CK; CK/EK-alpha; EK; ethanolamine kinase; EtnK-alpha
