Protein Information
Name ASAH2
Synonyms HNAC1
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, such as ASAH2, catalyzehydrolysis of the N-acyl linkage of ceramide, a second messenger ina variety of cellular events, to produce sphingosine. Sphingosineexerts both mitogenic and apoptosis-inducing activities, and itsphosphorylated form functions as an intra- and intercellular secondmessenger (see MIM 603730) (Mitsutake et al., 2001 [PubMed11328816]).
