Ceramides (N-Acylated Sphingosines)

We offer a comprehensive list of fully synthetic highly purified ceramides with various chain-lengths.

All ceramides are packed under inert gas and dispatched refrigerated.

Production of ceramide occurs upon hydrolysis of sphingomyelin by a specific isoform of PLC, appropriately named sphingomyelinase. C24:1 Ceramide (d18:1/24:1(15Z)) is one of the most abundant naturally occurring ceramides. Ceramides mediate many diverse biological activities, as has been demonstrated in studies utilizing cell-permeable ceramide analogs. A few of the processes regulated by ceramides include apoptosis, cell differentiation, proliferation of smooth muscle cells, and inhibition of the mitochondrial respiratory chain.
