3.5.1.23 additional information the enzyme has broad substrate specificity with preference for ceramides with a medium acyl-chain or a mono unsaturated long acyl-chain. The enzyme prefers ceramides with unsaturated acyl-chains over ceramides with saturated acyl-chains of the same length, and it does not use phytoceramides as substrates, suggesting that LsnCer is a ceramide-specific ceramidase Laodelphax striatellus ?
