General description

Sphinganine-d7 is a deuterated derivative of sphinganine. Sphinganine, also called as dihydrosphingosine is a derivative of sphingosine. Sphinganines are produced in endoplasmic reticulum, by decarboxylating condensation of palmitoyl-CoA and serine.


Sphinganine-d7 has been used as an internal standard for quantification of sphingolipid concentrations in plasma and tissue samples by high-performance liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sphinganine (SPA) acts as a selective inhibitor of protein kinase C in intact human neutrophils. It may function a potential biomarker for the diagnosis of sphingolipidoses. SPA accumulation enables fumonisin B1 to stimulate apoptosis. It also has an ability to block cholesterol transport in Niemann-Pick Type C (NPC) disease.

Sphingolipids are an important group of lipids that play crucial roles in living cells, facilitating cell recognition, signal transduction and endocytosis. The concentration of sphingosine and some of its derivatives like sphinganine may serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis
