Summaries for SGPP1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SGPP1 Gene

  • Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a bioactive sphingolipid metabolite that regulates diverse biologic processes. SGPP1 catalyzes the degradation of S1P via salvage and recycling of sphingosine into long-chain ceramides (Mandala et al., 2000 [PubMed 10859351]; Le Stunff et al., 2007 [PubMed 17895250]).[supplied by OMIM, Jun 2009]

GeneCards Summary for SGPP1 Gene

SGPP1 (Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Phosphatase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Sphingolipid metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include sphingosine-1-phosphate phosphatase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SGPP2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SGPP1 Gene

  • Has enzymatic activity against both sphingosine 1-phosphate (S1P) and dihydro-S1P. Regulates intracellular and extracellular S1P levels.
