GeneCards Summary for CERS4 Gene

CERS4 (Ceramide Synthase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Sphingolipid metabolism and Metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sphingosine N-acyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CERS2.

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).
