Ceramides have been implied in intracellular signal transduction systems regulating cellular differentiation, activation, survival and apoptosis and thus appear capable of changing the life style of virtually any cell type. Ceramide belongs to the group of sphingosine-based lipid second messenger molecules that are critically involved in the regulation of diverse cellular responses to exogenous stimuli. The emerging picture suggests that coupling of ceramide to specific signaling cascades is… CONTINUE READING
