Protein
Ceramide synthase 3
Gene
CERS3, LASS3
Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 5 out of 5 - Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Has (dihydro)ceramide synthesis activity with relatively broad substrate specificity, but a preference for C18:0 and other middle- to long-chain fatty acyl-CoAs By similarity. It is crucial for the synthesis of very long-chain ceramides in the epidermis, to maintain epidermal lipid homeostasis and terminal differentiation.1 Publication

Catalytic activityi

Acyl-CoA + sphingosine = CoA + N-acylsphingosine.
Acyl-CoA + dihydrosphingosine = CoA + N-acyldihydrosphingosine.

Involvement in diseasei

Ichthyosis, congenital, autosomal recessive 9 (ARCI9) [MIM:615023]: A form of autosomal recessive congenital ichthyosis, a disorder of keratinization with abnormal differentiation and desquamation of the epidermis, resulting in abnormal skin scaling over the whole body. The main skin phenotypes are lamellar ichthyosis (LI) and non-bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma (NCIE), although phenotypic overlap within the same patient or among patients from the same family can occur. Lamellar ichthyosis is a condition often associated with an embedment in a collodion-like membrane at birth; skin scales later develop, covering the entire body surface. Non-bullous congenital ichthyosiform erythroderma characterized by fine whitish scaling on an erythrodermal background; larger brownish scales are present on the buttocks, neck and legs.
Note: The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.1 Publication
