The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.5 - 4 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 86 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 86 kDa).
機能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.
組織特異性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.
配列類似性Belongs to the neutral ceramidase family.
翻訳後修飾N-glycosylated. Required for enzyme activity. O-glycosylated. Required to retain it as a type II membrane protein at the cell surface. Phosphorylated. May prevent ubiquitination and subsequent degradation. Ubiquitinated, leading to its degradation by the proteasome. Ubiquitination is triggered by nitric oxid.
細胞内局在Cell membrane. 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.
