Lipid lateral organization is increasingly found to modulate membrane-bound enzymes. We followed in real time the reaction course of sphingomyelin (SM) degradation by Bacillus cereus sphingomyelinase (SMase) of lipid monolayers by epifluorescence microscopy. There is evidence that formation of ceramide (Cer), a lipid second messenger, drives structural(More)
In this work we describe two aspects of molecular and supramolecular information transduction. The first is the biochemical and structural information content and transduction associated with sphingomyelinase activity. The results disclose a lipid-mediated cross-communication between the sphingomyelinase and phospholipase A2 pathways. In addition, the(More)
