Paralogs (14.6 %) ;  |  Homologs in   Hemiascomycota (97.1 %);  Basidiomycota (36.3 %);  Fungi (97.1 %);  Eukaryota (97.1 %);  Plants (28 %);  Mammalia (32.1 %);  Human (31 %);  Bacteria (19.7 %);  All except yeast (97.1 %)

  • similarity to serine C-palmitoyltransferases
  • homologous to 5-aminolevulinic acid synthase and to 2-amino-3-ketobutyrate coA ligase | PUBMED
  • belongs to class-II of pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferases
Functional Classification:
    ..lipid, fatty acid and isoprenoid metabolism
    ....membrane lipid metabolism
    ......glycolipid metabolism | 15 Entries | Evi | PUBMED
EC Number:
  • Transferases
    ....Transferring groups other than amino-acyl groups
    ......serine C-palmitoyltransferase | 2 Entries | Evi | PUBMED
  • pyridoxal phosphate
  • first step in the biosynthesis of the long-chain base component of sphingolipids
Localization:  LCB1 localization details
  • integral membrane / endomembranes (not assigned to a specific membrane)
  • cytoplasm
  • ER
 TargetP: Secretory pathway  (RC = 4)
Phenotypes:  Disruption: LCB1 details
  • lethal
  • null mutants do not grow unless supplied with a sphingolipid long chain base | PUBMED
  • null mutants not supplied with long chain base become more dense and lose viability, but loss of viability can be overcome by blocking nucleic acid or protein synthesis | PUBMED
  • overexpression of both LCB1 and LCB2 required for increased activity of serine palmitoyltransferase | PUBMED
  • slc1-1 and slc2-1 (mnn10) mutants allow growth in the absence of sphingolipid supplementation, possibly via forming novel inositol glycero-lipids | PUBMED
  • SphingoLipid Compensatory strains do not grow under cellular stress conditions, heat-sensitivity can be rescued by phytosphingosine | PUBMED
