Mechanistically, hepatocyte exosomes directly fuse with target hepatocytes and transfer neutral ceramidase and sphingosine kinase 2 (SK2) causing increased synthesis of sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) within target hepatocytes.
Fabrias et al., Barcelona, Spain. In J Lipid Res, Oct 2015
Both bacterial and human purified neutral ceramidases (NCs), as well as ectopically expressed mouse neutral ceramidase hydrolyzed RBM14 with different selectivity, depending on the N-acyl chain length.
Gudz et al., Charleston, United States. In J Biol Chem, 2014
Investigation of intracellular sites of sphingosine accumulation revealed an elevation of sphingosine in mitochondria due to the activation of neutral ceramidase (NCDase) and the reduced activity of sphingosine kinase 2 (SphK2).
Iwabuchi et al., Urayasu, Japan. In Plos One, 2013
A Pseudomonas aeruginosa-derived neutral ceramidase (PaCDase) isolated from a patient with AD was shown to effectively degrade ceramide in the presence of Staphylococcus aureus-derived lipids or neutral detergents.
Nilsson et al., Lund, Sweden. In Prog Lipid Res, 2009
Metabolism of dietary and membrane sphingolipids in the intestine generates ceramide, sphingosine, sphingosine-1-phosphate, and ceramide-1-phosphate, via the action of alkaline sphingomyelinase, neutral ceramidase, sphingosine-1-kinase, and ceramide-1-kinase.
Igarashi et al., Sapporo, Japan. In Cell Signal, 2007
This review focuses on the metabolic enzymes (acid and alkaline sphingomyelinases, neutral ceramidase, and sphingosine kinase) that are involved in the production of the sphingolipid metabolites in these extracellular spaces, and on the metabolic pathway itself.
