ENZYME entry: EC 2.7.1.227

Accepted Name
inositol phosphorylceramide synthase.
Reaction catalysed
a 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycero-3-phospho-(1D-myo-inositol) + an N-(2R-hydroxy-very-long-chain fatty acyl)-(R)-4-hydroxysphingoid base <=> a 1,2-diacyl-sn-glycerol + a 1D-myo-inositol-1-phospho-N-[(R)-2-hydroxy-very-long-chain fatty acyl]-(R)-4-hydroxysphingoid base
Comment(s)
The enzyme, characterized from yeast, attaches a phosphoinositol headgroup to alpha-hydroxyphytoceramides, generating a very-long- chain inositol phospho-alpha hydroxyphytoceramide (IPC), the simplest of the three complex sphingolipids produced by yeast.
