Gene RIF (15)

25231990 F-actin polymerization in the region of HIV-1 membrane fusion was more prominent in Sms2-expressing cells than Sms-deficient cells.
25231990 SMS2 is involved in HIV-1 gp120-induced phosphorylation and activation of PYK2 and polymerization of F-actin
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
21235823 direct morphological evidence for the pro-atherogenic capabilities of sphingomyelin synthase 2
20332099 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19454763 Data show that SMS2 acting as a bifunctional enzyme with both SM and CPE synthase activity.
19286635 Sphingomyelin synthase 2 is one of the determinants for plasma and liver sphingomyelin levels in mice.
19233134 These results suggested that posttranslational palmitoylation is important for determination of the subcellular localization of SMS2.
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.
18566297 SMS2 (Sphingomyelin synthase 2) physiologically contributes to de novo Sphingomyelin biosynthesis and plasma membrane Sphingomyelin levels
18370930 SMS2 regulates subcellular pools of diacylglycerol-binding proteins in the Golgi apparatus.
17982138 SMS2 is a key factor in control of sphingomyelin and diacylglycerol metabolism within the cell, and thus it influences 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.
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.
