Collagen, type IV, alpha 3
CERT, GPBP, Goodpasture antigen-binding protein, ceramide transfer protein CERT
This gene encodes a kinase that specifically phosphorylates the N-terminal region of the non-collagenous domain of the alpha 3 chain of type IV collagen, known as the Goodpasture antigen. Goodpasture disease is the result of an autoimmune response directed at this antigen. One isoform of this protein is also involved in ceramide intracellular transport. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from

25-Hydroxycholesterol (25OH) competitively inhibits this exchange reaction in vitro and causes the constitutive localization of OSBP at the ER/Golgi interface and PI-4P-dependent recruitment of ceramide transfer protein (CERT) for sphingomyelin synthesis.
Radde et al., Stuttgart, Germany. In Bmc Syst Biol, 2014
This process is regulated by a complex molecular network including protein kinase D (PKD), which is directly involved in the fission of transport vesicles, and its interaction with the ceramide transfer protein CERT that transports ceramide from the endoplasmic reticulum to the TGN.

These platforms contain the C. trachomatis inclusion membrane protein IncD, the mammalian ceramide transfer protein CERT and the ER resident proteins VAPA/B and were proposed to play a role in the non-vesicular trafficking of lipids to the inclusion.
Machamer et al., Baltimore, United States. In Biochem J, 2012
during cellular stress, disassembly of Golgi structure together with inactivation of CERT by caspases causes a reduction in ceramide trafficking and sphingomyelin synthesis, and could contribute to the cellular response to pro-apoptotic stress
Engel et al., San Francisco, United States. In Plos Pathog, 2011
We hypothesize that sphingomyelin acquired by CERT-dependent transport of ceramide and subsequent conversion to SM is necessary for C. trachomatis replication whereas SM acquired by GBF1-dependent pathway is essential for inclusion growth and stability.
