Abstract: The recent implementation of genomic and lipidomic approaches has produced a large body of evidence implicating the sphingolipid ceramide in a diverse range of physiological processes and as a critical modulator of cellular stress. In this review, we discuss from a historical perspective the most important discoveries produced over the last decade supporting a role for ceramide and its metabolites in the pathogenesis of insulin resistance and other obesity-associated metabolic diseases. Moreover, we describe how a ceramide-centric view of insulin resistance might be reconciled in the context of other prominent models of nutrient-induced insulin resistance. © 2012 Elsevier Inc.
