CERS4 (Ceramide Synthase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sphingolipid metabolism and Sphingolipid metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include sequence-specific DNA binding transcription factor activity and sphingosine N-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CERS5.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CERS4 Gene
May be either a bona fide (dihydro)ceramide synthase or a modulator of its activity. When overexpressed in cells is involved in the production of sphingolipids containing different fatty acid donors (N-linked stearoyl- (C18) or arachidoyl- (C20) ceramides) in a fumonisin B1-independent manner (By similarity).
