CERS5
Ceramide synthase 5

Protein Summary
Description
Dihydroceramide synthase. Catalyzes the acylation of sphingosine to form dihydroceramide, with high selectivity toward palmitoyl-CoA as acyl donor compared to stearoyl-CoA. Inhibited by fumonisin B1 (By similarity). This gene encodes a protein that belongs to the TLC (TRAM, LAG1 and CLN8 homology domains) family of proteins. The encoded protein functions in the synthesis of ceramide, a lipid molecule that is involved in a several cellular signaling pathways. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
