Induction of glucosylceramide synthase by synthase inhibitors and ceramide.


Glucosylceramide (GlcCer) synthase acts on the sphingolipid, ceramide, to transer a glucose moiety from UDP-glc, thus forming the first member of a large family of glucosphingolipids. Two inhibitors of the enzyme, D-threo-1-phenyl-2-decanoylamino-3-morpholino-1-propanol (D-threo-PDMP) and N-butyldeoxynojirimycin (NBDN), have been found to induce an elevated… (More)
