Sphingomyelin is a membrane phospholipid with a central sphingosine and an amide linked fatty acid. Phosphocholine forms the polar head group. It is one of the major phospholipid present in milk fat globule membrane.
Sphingomyelin controls cell growth, differentiation, apoptosis and signal transduction along the membrane. It is known to prevent the proliferation of colon tumour. Sphingomyelin also inhibits cholesterol absorption. Abnormal accumulation of sphingomyelin causes Niemann Pick disease.
