Serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT), which consists of two different subunits, is the key enzyme in sphingolipid biosynthesis. It converts L-serine and palmitoyl-CoA to 3-oxosphinganine with pyridoxal 5'-phosphate as a cofactor. SPTLC1 (serine palmitoyltransferase, long chain base subunit 1 is the long chain base subunit 1 of serine palmitoyltransferase. Mutations in SPTLC1 were identified in patients with hereditary sensory neuropathy type 1 [taken from NCBI Entrez Gene (Gene ID: 10558)].
