SAH1 is a gene encoding the N-acylsphingosine amidohydrolase 1, also referred to as acid ceramidase. This protein plays role in breaking down lipid molecules known as ceramides. The effects of specific mutations in ASAH1 can be difficult to determine because they are not easily measured in cellular models.

Providing modelling and drug screening services for ASAH1 can be a complicated process. For this reason, we may be limited in our abilities to provide research services for mutations in this gene at this time. Please contact us with interests and inquiries.
