|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||P0C7U2, P0C7U1, NP_001072984.1|
|Calculated MW||85516 Da|
|Antigen Region||734-762 aa|
|Other Names||Neutral ceramidase, N-CDase, NCDase, Acylsphingosine deacylase 2, BCDase, LCDase, hCD, N-acylsphingosine amidohydrolase 2, Non-lysosomal ceramidase, Neutral ceramidase soluble form, ASAH2, HNAC1|
|Target/Specificity||This ASAH2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 734-762 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human ASAH2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ASAH2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Hydrolyzes the sphingolipid ceramide into sphingosine and free fatty acid at an optimal pH of 6.5-8.5. Acts as a key regulator of sphingolipid signaling metabolites by generating sphingosine at the cell surface. Acts as a repressor of apoptosis both by reducing C16-ceramide, thereby preventing ceramide-induced apoptosis, and generating sphingosine, a precursor of the antiapoptotic factor sphingosine 1-phosphate. Probably involved in the digestion of dietary sphingolipids in intestine by acting as a key enzyme for the catabolism of dietary sphingolipids and regulating the levels of bioactive sphingolipid metabolites in the intestinal tract.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Note=The neutral ceramidase soluble form is a secreted protein. According to PubMed:10781606, it is mitochondrial. However, they used a shorter form in its N- terminus, which may explain this localization which probably does not exist in vivo|
|Tissue Location||Primarily expressed in the intestine (PubMed:17334805). Ubiquitously expressed with higher levels in kidney, skeletal muscle and heart (PubMed:10781606). According to PubMed:17334805, ubiquitous expression attributed to ASAH2 may be actually that of the paralog ASAH2B.|

Ceramidases (EC 18.104.22.168), such as ASAH2, catalyze hydrolysis of the N-acyl linkage of ceramide, a second messenger in a variety of cellular events, to produce sphingosine. Sphingosine exerts both mitogenic and apoptosis-inducing activities, and its phosphorylated form functions as an intra- and intercellular second messenger (see MIM 603730) (Mitsutake et al., 2001 [PubMed 11328816]).
