A new twist to the emerging functions of ceramides in cancer: novel role for platelet acid sphingomyelinase in cancer metastasis


It is now appreciated that sphingolipids constitute a rich class of bioactive molecules that include ceramide, sphingosine, and sphingosine 1‐phosphate whose formation is controlled by a network of highly regulated enzymes (Hannun & Obeid, 2008). Notably, several stress stimuli induce the production of ceramide, which, as a single entity, has been… (More)
