Ceramide kinase mediates cytokine- and calcium ionophore-induced arachidonic acid release.


Despite the importance of prostaglandins, little is known about the regulation of prostanoid synthesis proximal to the activation of cytosolic phospholipase A2, the initial rate-limiting step. In this study, ceramide-1-phosphate (C-1-P) was shown to be a specific and potent inducer of arachidonic acid (AA) and prostanoid synthesis in cells. This study also… (More)
