Acid ceramidase precursor
Acid ceramidase subunit beta
N acylsphingosine amidohydrolase
N acylsphingosine amidohydrolase (acid ceramidase) 1
N acylsphingosine amidohydrolase 1
Putative 32 kDa heart protein
FunctionHydrolyzes the sphingolipid ceramide into sphingosine and free fatty acid.
Tissue specificityBroadly expressed with highest expression in heart.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in ASAH1 are the cause of Farber lipogranulomatosis (FL) [MIM:228000]; also known as Farber disease (FD). This sphingolipid disease is characterized by subcutaneous lipid-loaded nodules, excruciating pain in the joints and extremities, marked accumulation of ceramide in lysosomes, and death by three years of age.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the acid ceramidase family.
