Accepted name: sphingolipid C9-methyltransferase
Reaction: S-adenosyl-L-methionine + a (4E,8E)-sphinga-4,8-dienine ceramide = S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + a 9-methyl-(4E,8E)-sphinga-4,8-dienine ceramide
Systematic name: S-adenosyl-L-methionine:(4E,8E)-sphinga-4,8-dienine ceramide C-methyltransferase
Comments: The enzyme, characterized from the fungi Komagataella pastoris and Fusarium graminearum, acts only on ceramides and has no activity with free sphingoid bases or glucosylceramides.
