GeneCards Summary for SGPL1 Gene
SGPL1 (Sphingosine-1-Phosphate Lyase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SGPL1 include Nephrotic Syndrome, Type 14 and Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease. Among its related pathways are Sphingolipid signaling pathway and Sphingolipid metabolism. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include pyridoxal phosphate binding and sphinganine-1-phosphate aldolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GAD2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for SGPL1 Gene
Cleaves phosphorylated sphingoid bases (PSBs), such as sphingosine-1-phosphate, into fatty aldehydes and phosphoethanolamine. Elevates stress-induced ceramide production and apoptosis (PubMed:11018465, PubMed:14570870, PubMed:24809814, PubMed:28165339). Required for global lipid homeostasis in liver and cholesterol homeostasis in fibroblasts. Involved in the regulation of pro-inflammatory response and neutrophil trafficking. Modulates neuronal autophagy via phosphoethanolamine production which regulates accumulation of aggregate-prone proteins such as APP (By similarity). Seems to play a role in establishing neuronal contact sites and axonal maintenance (By similarity).
