26887952 These results suggest that the phosphorylation of ceramide synthases may be a key regulatory point in the control of the distribution and levels of sphingolipids of various acyl-chain lengths.
26150338 these results indicate that miR-9 upregulation might be associated with malignant phenotype of bladder cancer. miR-9 promotes chemoresistance of bladder cancer cells by target LASS2.

22580606 LASS2 is involved in chemotherapeutic outcomes and low LASS2 expression may predict chemoresistance.
22573553 silencing of LASS2/TMSG1 can promote invasion of prostate cancer cell in vitro through increase of V-ATPase activity which accelerated tumor's invasion and metastasis, indicating that LASS2/TMSG1 is a novel tumor metastasis suppressor gene
22336162 There is a nucleolar localization signal within TMSG-1.

19912991 CerS2 and CerS6 mRNA was significantly elevated in breast cancer tissue compared to paired normal tissue, with approximately half of the individuals showing elevated CerS2 and CerS6 mRNA.
19728861 CerS2 down-regulation had a broad effect on ceramide homoeostasis, not just on very-long-chain ceramides.
18194600 TMSG-1 overexpression caused strong inhibition of proliferation and decreased clonogenicity of MDA-MB-231 cells, and promoted cell apoptosis.
18165233 activity of CerS2 can be regulated by another bioactive sphingolipid, sphingosine 1-phosphate
