A critical role for ceramide synthase 2 in liver homeostasis: I. alterations in lipid metabolic pathways.

Ceramide is an important lipid signaling molecule that plays critical roles in regulating cell behavior. Ceramide synthesis is surprisingly complex and is orchestrated by six mammalian ceramide synthases, each of which produces ceramides with restricted acyl chain lengths. We have generated a CerS2 null mouse and characterized the changes in the long chain… CONTINUE READING
