Ceramide has been used as lipid standard and as a growth medium for human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs).

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ceramide plays a major role in the anabolic and catabolic pathways of sphingolipids. It acts as a extracellular stimuli for many cellular processes like differentiation, growth suppression, cell senescence and apoptosis.
