26065260 The structural organization of 5'-UTR variants of SGMS1 transcripts, directed by alternative promoters, is substantially different; this can provide regulation of the gene functioning on post-transcriptional level.
25912551 A study of the expression of the full-length SMS1 protein and the sum of the alternative transcripts encoding this protein in human tissues.
24960545 We found upregulation of specific sphingolipid enzymes, namely sphingomyelin synthase 1 (SMS1), sphingomyelinase 3 (SMPD3), and glucosylceramide synthase (GCS) in the endometrium of endometriotic women.
24062078 The amount of SMS1 transcripts varies considerably between different human tissues.
23977395 SGMS activity impacts on amyloid precursor protein processing to produce amyloid-beta (Abeta) and it could be a contributing factor in Abeta pathology associated with Alzheimer's disease.
23160178 Findings indicate that Sms1 is a downstream target of Bcr-abl, involved in sustaining cell proliferation of Bcr-abl-positive cells.
22106271 Data indicate that the increased sphingomyelin mass was due to a rapid and highly specific activation of sphingomyelin synthases SMS1 and SMS2.
21980337 SMS1 and SMS2 are capable of regulating TGN-mediated protein trafficking and secretion
21856749 SMS1-mediated SM synthesis directs Tf-TfR to undergo clathrin-dependent endocytosis and recycling, promoting the proliferation of lymphoma cells.
21549185 Our results indicate that the regulation of SMS1 expression is complex and occurs at the transcriptional, post-transcriptional and translational levels.
21418611 Cellular sphingomyelin levels are positively related to cellular cholesterol levels and sphingomyelin synthase overexpression-mediated cellular sphingomyelin content changes are related to cellular Apo A-I content and secretion
21203393 sphingomyelin synthase has a role in controlling the antimicrobial activity of neutrophils against Cryptococcus neoformans
20379614 Clinical trial of gene-disease association and gene-environment interaction. (HuGE Navigator)
19779494 Altogether, our data show that SMS1 is a novel caspase target that is functionally involved in the regulation of FasL-induced apoptosis.
19506037 Results establish the sphingomyelin synthase (SMS1)-related enzyme SMSr as a key regulator of ceramide homeostasis that seems to operate as a sensor rather than a converter of ceramides in the endoplasmic reticulum.
18820264 Impaired TCR signaling through dysfunction of lipid rafts in SMS1-knockdown T cells
18694848 Both SMS1 and SMS2 contain two histidines and one aspartic acid which are conserved within the lipid phosphate phosphatase superfamily. Site-directed mutagenesis of these amino acids abolished SMS activity without altering cellular distribution.
18370930 SMS1 regulates subcellular pools of diacylglycerol-binding proteins in the Golgi apparatus.
17982138 SMS1 and SMS2 are key factors in the control of sphingomyelin and diacylglycerol metabolism within the cell, and thus they influence apoptosis.
17616479 Results indicate that both synthase (SMS)1 and 2 contribute to sphingomyelin (SM) de novo synthesis and control SM levels in the cells and on the cell membrane including plasma membrane.
17467659 Overexpression of SMS1 is associated with suppressed ceramide response and apoptotic resistance after photodamage.
17449912 Data show that sphingomyelin synthases SMS1 and SMS2 are co-expressed in a variety of cell types and function as the key Golgi- and plasma membrane-associated SM synthases in human cervical carcinoma HeLa cells, respectively.
16508036 Adenovirus-mediated SMS1 overexpression increased lipoprotein atherogenic potential.
16385451 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
15315829 MOB gene activity is believed to be controlled at least at the transcriptional and the posttranscriptional levels, strictly regulating the amount of the encoded protein product.
14976195 SMS1 is responsible for SM synthase activity in mammalian cells and plays a critical role in cell growth of lymphoid cells.
11841947 The 1.6 kb Hmob33 clone obtained from the medulla oblongata cDNA library and mapped to the human chromosome 10 was examined to find the coding region(MOB)
