The kinase products, phosphocholine and phosphoethanolamine, are then coupled with CTP by the specific and the pathway regulatory enzymes CDP-phosphocholine and CDP phosphoethanolamine cytidylyltransferases (CCT/Pcyt1 and ECT/Pcyt2) to yield CDPcholine and CDP-ethanolamine, respectively, and to release inorganic pyrophosphate.
