Protein Information
Name ASAH2
Synonyms HNAC1
Function Plasma membrane ceramidase that hydrolyzes sphingolipid ceramides into sphingosine and free fatty acids at neutral pH (PubMed:10781606, PubMed:16229686, PubMed:26190575). Ceramides, sphingosine, and its phosphorylated form sphingosine-1-phosphate are bioactive lipids that mediate cellular signaling pathways regulating several biological processes including cell proliferation, apoptosis and differentiation (PubMed:15946935, PubMed:19345744, PubMed:24798654). Also catalyzes the reverse reaction allowing the synthesis of ceramides from fatty acids and sphingosine (PubMed:11278489, PubMed:17475390). Together with sphingomyelinase, participates in the production of sphingosine and sphingosine-1-phosphate from the degradation of sphingomyelin, a sphingolipid enriched in the plasma membrane of cells (PubMed:16061940). Also participates in the hydrolysis of ceramides from the extracellular milieu allowing the production of sphingosine-1-phosphate inside and outside cells (By similarity). This is the case for instance with the digestion of dietary sphingolipids in the intestinal tract (By similarity).
Cellular Location Neutral ceramidase: Cell membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q91XT9}. Membrane raft {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9JHE3}; Single-pass type II membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q91XT9}. Membrane, caveola {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9JHE3}; Single-pass type II membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q91XT9}. Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q91XT9}. Mitochondrion. Secreted, exosome. Note=Enriched in exosomes upon stimulation by cytokine (PubMed:24798654). Enriched in caveolae and lipid rafts (By similarity). The localization to the mitochondrion could not be confirmed (PubMed:15845354) {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:Q9JHE3, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15845354, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24798654}
Tissue Location Primarily expressed in intestine (PubMed:17334805). Ubiquitously expressed with higher levels in kidney, skeletal muscle and heart (PubMed:10781606). The ubiquitous expression observed for ASAH2 might be an experimental artifact due to the paralog ASAH2B (PubMed:17334805)

Ceramidases (EC, 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]).
