C16 Dihydroceramide (d18:0/16:0) is suitable for use to study the potential relevance of the changes observed in the sphingolipid composition of autophagosomes and autolysosomes in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) treated cells or to destabilize biological membranes.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Dihydroceramide acts as a precursor for ceramide synthesis. It has an ability to induce autophagy in the perinuclear region. Dihydroceramide affects autophagic flux and enhances the formation lipid droplets. Accumulation of C16-dihydroceramides might lead to liver injury.

To better understand the interactions of saturated ceramides with unsaturated glycerophospholipids in bilayer membranes, we measured how palmitoyl ceramide (PCer) and dihydroceramide (dihydro-PCer, lacking the trans 4 double bond of the sphingoid base of ceramide) can interact with phosphatidylcholines (PCs)

Autophagy is considered primarily a cell survival process, although it can also lead to cell death. However, the factors that dictate the shift between these 2 opposite outcomes remain largely unknown. In this work, we used Δ9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC, the main
