Gene: Cerk (ceramide kinase) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cerk
Name: ceramide kinase
Description: Exhibits ceramide kinase activity. Predicted to be involved in ceramide metabolic process and phosphorylation. Localizes to mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human CERK (ceramide kinase); PARTICIPATES IN Fabry disease pathway; Gaucher's disease pathway; Krabbe disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; Aroclor 1254; benzo[a]pyrene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: acylsphingosine kinase; AI848610; D330016D08Rik; mCERK; mKIAA1646
