Accepted name: sphingomyelin deacylase
Reaction: (1) an N-acyl-sphingosylphosphorylcholine + H2O = a fatty acid + sphingosylphosphorylcholine
(2) a D-glucosyl-N-acylsphingosine + H2O = a fatty acid + D-glucosyl-sphingosine
Glossary: sphingomyelin = N-acyl-sphingosylphosphorylcholine
D-glucosyl-N-acylsphingosine = glucosylceramide
Other name(s): SM deacylase; GcSM deacylase; glucosylceramide sphingomyelin deacylase; sphingomyelin glucosylceramide deacylase; SM glucosylceramide GCer deacylase; SM-GCer deacylase; SMGCer deacylase
Systematic name: N-acyl-sphingosylphosphorylcholine amidohydrolase
Comments: The enzyme is involved in the sphingolipid metabolism in the epidermis.
