PFAM accession number:PF17048
Interpro abstract (IPR031331):

This family represents the C-terminal domain of a group of neutral/alkaline ceramidases found in both bacteria and eukaryotes [ (PUBMED:10753931) (PUBMED:10781606) (PUBMED:10593963) ]. The EC classification is ( EC ). The enzyme hydrolyses ceramide to generate sphingosine and fatty acid. The enzyme plays a regulatory role in a variety of physiological events in eukaryotes and also functions as an exotoxin in particular bacteria. This C-terminal tail of the enzyme is highly conserved across all species and may play a role in the interaction of the enzyme with the plasma membranes. The tail is also vital for the stabilisation of the enzyme as a whole [ (PUBMED:19088069) ].

This is a PFAM domain. For full annotation and more information, please see the PFAM entry Ceramidse_alk_C
