CTPS the enzyme cytidine-5-prime-triphosphate synthetase converts UTP to CTP. Important in the biosynthesis of phospholipids and nucleic acids, and plays a key role in cell growth, development, and tumorigenesis. The region to which the CTPS gene has been mapped is the location of breakpoints involved in several tumor types. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
