General description

C12 Ceramide (d18:1/12:0) is a synthetic ceramide containing sphingosine with lauric acid.


C12 Ceramide (d18:1/12:0) or N-lauroyl-D-erythro-sphingosine has been used:
  • as a lipid standard in the optimization of the liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) method conditions
  • as an internal standard for lipid extraction in U87MG (human glioma cell line)
  • as an internal standard for the quantification of ceramide using liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry (LC-MS) in rat tissues

Biochem/physiol Actions

Ceramides are signaling sphingolipids, which are implicated in regulating stress responses and inflammation. It also regulates cell growth arrest, differentiation and apoptosis.

Sphingolipids (SLs) are structurally diverse lipids that are defined by the presence of a long-chain base (LCB) backbone. Typically, LCBs contain a single Δ4E double bond (DB) (mostly d18:1), whereas the dienic LCB sphingadienine (d18:2) contains a second DB at
