This gene encodes a kinase that phosphorylates sphingosine into sphingosine-1-phosphate which is involved in cell differentiation motility and apoptosis. The encoded protein plays a role in maintaining cellular levels of sphingosine-1-phosphate. The gene product also enhances apoptosis in different cell types and suppresses cellular proliferation. In mast cells the encoded protein is necessary for influx of calcium protein kinase C activation and cytokine production and degranulation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq Feb 2010]
