Long description

Sphingolipids, in addition to being structural components of membranes, regulate cell-cell and cell-substrate interactions, proliferation, and differentiation. Members of this diverse group of lipids have emerged as a novel class of signaling molecules that also regulate phagocytosis. The mechanisms by which sphingolipids exert these effects remain incompletely defined. More than a decade ago, it was found that ceramide can be phosphorylated to ceramide 1-phosphate (C1P). Ceramide kinase (CERK) and its phosphorylated product ceramide 1-phosphate (C1P) are central players in inflammation and cancer. The product of CERK activity, ceramide 1-phosphate (C1P), has been reported to have mitogenic effects. C1P is a direct activator of cytosolic phospholipase A2 and is involved in arachidonic acid release. CERK is a mediator of Ca2+-dependent degranulation in mast cells. In both arachidonic acid release and mast cell degranulation, the intracellular elevation of Ca2+ is a central event that acts as a regulatory mechanism of CERK activity. C1P is found in brain synaptic vesicles, and plays a role in regulating the secretion of neurotransmitters. CERK activity exists in HL-60 cells where the C1P is derived from ceramide released from sphingomyelin. The expressed kinase has specific ceramide phosphorylating activity. CERKs exist in a variety of cellular organisms, including plants, nematodes, insects, and vertebrates.

Enzymes are cleaving the substrate. If the substrate is DNA they are called restriction enzymes. Activating enzymes will cut off the domain that is biological active to become functional.
