- Ceramides (pronounced ser-A-mid OR
seramide) are a family of lipid molecules. A
ceramide is composed of sphingosine and a fatty acid.
- Ceramides are found in high
concentrations within the cell membrane of cells. They are one of
the component lipids that make up sphingomyelin, one of the major
lipids in the lipid bilayer.
- The most well-known functions of
ceramides as cellular signals include regulating the
differentiation, proliferation, programmed cell death (PCD), and
apoptosis (Type I PCD) of cells.
- There are three major pathways of
ceramide generation. The sphingomyelinases
pathway uses an enzyme to break down sphingomyelin in the cell
release ceramide. The de novo pathway creates ceramide from less
- Ceramide generation can also occur
through breakdown of complex sphingolipids that
are ultimately broken down into sphingosine, which is then reused by
reacylation to form ceramide. This latter pathway is termed the
- Ceramides are formed as the key
intermediates in the biosynthesis of all the complex sphingolipids,
in which the terminal primary hydroxyl group is linked to
carbohydrate, phosphate etc.
- The distinctive ceramides in the skin
are derived mainly from glucosylceramide
synthesized in specific organelles termed 'lamellar bodies' in the
- As a bioactive lipid, ceramide has
been implicated in a variety of physiological functions including
apoptosis, cell growth arrest, differentiation, cell senescence, cell
migration and adhesion.
- Ceramides are also produced during the
catabolism of the complex sphingolipids, for
example by the action of one or other of the sphingomyelinases or of
phospholiphase on sphingomyelin in animal tissues as part of the
- Ceramides, like other lipid second
messengers in signal transduction, are produced
rapidly and transiently in response to specific stimuli in order to
target specific proteins.
- Because of its apoptosis-inducing
effects in cancer cells, ceramide has been termed the "tumor
- Several studies have attempted to
define further the specific role of ceramide in the events of cell
death and some evidence suggests ceramide functions upstream of the
mitochondria in inducing apoptosis.
- The lipid ceramide is widely
recognized as being central for the mediation of the cellular stress
response and the regulation of apoptosis in many cells. Ceramide has
been demonstrated to be required for the cellular response to stress
stimuli such as ionizing radiation, UVA-light, heat, and TNF
