Background Information

SPHK2(Sphingosine kinase 2) is also named as SK2,SPK2 and catalyzes the phosphorylation of sphingosine to form sphingosine 1-phosphate (SPP), a lipid mediator with both intra- and extracellular functions. SPHK2 associates with HDAC1 and HDAC2 in repressor complexes and is selectively enriched at the promoters of the genes encoding the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p21 or the transcriptional regulator c-fos, where it enhanced local histone H3 acetylation and transcription.SphK2 is a ~66kDa protein that is most abundantly expressed in the liver and heart(PMID:19168577). SPHK2 has some isoforms with molecular mass of 65-70 kDa.
