Efrat Eliyahu  

Research Interest:

Acid ceramidase (AC) is required to hydrolyze the signaling lipid, ceramide, into sphingosine and free fatty acids. The production of ceramide in cell membranes leads to reorganization of "raft" structures, activation of signaling proteins, and the initiation of apoptosis. Sphingosine is rapidly converted to sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P), another important signaling lipid that counteracts the effects of ceramide and promotes cell survival. Importantly, AC also synthesizes ceramide from sphingosine and free fatty acids (i.e., the "reverse" reaction). Thus, AC is a "rheostat" that regulates the levels of ceramide and S1P in cells, and as such participates in the complex and delicate balance between death and survival. Importantly, inherited mutations in the AC gene cause the severe lipid storage disorder, Farber disease. Infants with Farber disease develop multiple abnormalities within the first few weeks of life, including deformed joints, progressive hoarseness, subcutaneous nodules, and severe motor and mental retardation. Most die by 2 years of age. Several cases of Farber disease presenting as "hydrops fetalis" also have been reported.
