sphingosine kinase 1

Gene Summary

This gene encodes a kinase that phosphorylates sphingosine into sphingosine-1-phosphate, which is involved in cell differentiation, motility, and apoptosis. The encoded protein plays a role in maintaining cellular levels of sphingosine-1-phosphate. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]
