• Official Full Name
  • alkaline ceramidase 2
  • Background
  • The sphingolipid metabolite sphingosine-1-phosphate promotes cell proliferation and survival, whereas its precursor,;sphingosine, has the opposite effect. The ceramidase ACER2 hydrolyzes very long chain ceramides to generate;sphingosine (Xu et al., 2006 (PubMed 16940153)).
  • Synonyms
