STRINGSTRING
CERS2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"CERS2" - Ceramide synthase 2 in Homo sapiens
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

CERS2Ceramide synthase 2; Suppresses the growth of cancer cells. May be involved in sphingolipid synthesis; CERS class homeoboxes (380 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
UGCG
Ceramide glucosyltransferase; Catalyzes the first glycosylation step in glycosphingolipid biosynthesis, the transfer of glucose to ceramide. May also serve as a "flippase"; Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family (394 aa)
     
 
  0.966
ASGR1
Asialoglycoprotein receptor 1; Mediates the endocytosis of plasma glycoproteins to which the terminal sialic acid residue on their complex carbohydrate moieties has been removed. The receptor recognizes terminal galactose and N-acetylgalactosamine units. After ligand binding to the receptor, the resulting complex is internalized and transported to a sorting organelle, where receptor and ligand are disassociated. The receptor then returns to the cell membrane surface; C-type lectin domain containing (291 aa)
     
 
  0.962
CERK
Ceramide kinase; Catalyzes specifically the phosphorylation of ceramide to form ceramide 1-phosphate. Acts efficiently on natural and analog ceramides (C6, C8, C16 ceramides, and C8-dihydroceramide), to a lesser extent on C2-ceramide and C6-dihydroceramide, but not on other lipids, such as various sphingosines. Binds phosphoinositides (537 aa)
     
 
  0.961
KDSR
3-ketodihydrosphingosine reductase; Catalyzes the reduction of 3-ketodihydrosphingosine (KDS) to dihydrosphingosine (DHS); Belongs to the short-chain dehydrogenases/reductases (SDR) family (332 aa)
     
 
  0.956
UGT8
2-hydroxyacylsphingosine 1-beta-galactosyltransferase; Catalyzes the transfer of galactose to ceramide, a key enzymatic step in the biosynthesis of galactocerebrosides, which are abundant sphingolipids of the myelin membrane of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system; Belongs to the UDP-glycosyltransferase family (541 aa)
     
 
  0.930
GALC
Galactocerebrosidase; Hydrolyzes the galactose ester bonds of galactosylceramide, galactosylsphingosine, lactosylceramide, and monogalactosyldiglyceride. Enzyme with very low activity responsible for the lysosomal catabolism of galactosylceramide, a major lipid in myelin, kidney and epithelial cells of small intestine and colon; Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 59 family (685 aa)
         
  0.919
SMPD1
Sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase; Converts sphingomyelin to ceramide. Also has phospholipase C activities toward 1,2-diacylglycerolphosphocholine and 1,2-diacylglycerolphosphoglycerol (631 aa)
     
 
  0.896
SMPD2
Sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase 2; Converts sphingomyelin to ceramide. Hydrolyze 1-acyl-2- lyso-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (lyso-PC) and 1-O-alkyl-2-lyso- sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (lyso-platelet-activating factor). The physiological substrate seems to be Lyso-PAF; Belongs to the neutral sphingomyelinase family (423 aa)
     
 
  0.888
SPHK2
Sphingosine kinase 2; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of sphingosine to form sphingosine 1-phosphate (SPP), a lipid mediator with both intra- and extracellular functions. Also acts on D-erythro- dihydrosphingosine, D-erythro-sphingosine and L-threo- dihydrosphingosine. Binds phosphoinositides (654 aa)
     
 
  0.865
SPHK1
Sphingosine kinase 1; Catalyzes the phosphorylation of sphingosine to form sphingosine 1-phosphate (SPP), a lipid mediator with both intra- and extracellular functions. Also acts on D-erythro- sphingosine and to a lesser extent sphinganine, but not other lipids, such as D,L-threo-dihydrosphingosine, N,N- dimethylsphingosine, diacylglycerol, ceramide, or phosphatidylinositol (470 aa)
