Abstract

Sphingolipid metabolites act as lipid mediators in various cellular events. We found that the mucin box and signal/anchor sequence of a rat neutral ceramidase recruit bacterial sphingomyelinase to the plasma membranes of mammalian cells. The mucin box-fused sphingomyelinase hydrolyzed cellular sphingomyelin efficiently to generate ceramide.
