    Summary
    Enables N-acylsphingosine amidohydrolase activity and metal ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including myelination; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and sphingolipid metabolic process. Is integral component of Golgi membrane and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis.

    RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

    These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

    These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
