General description

Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) or D-erythro-sphingosine-d7-1-phosphate, is a deuterated sphingolipid. S1P, a zwitterionic sphingolipid, is an important cellular metabolite and signaling lipid in animal cells. It has also been found in insects, yeasts and plants. S1P is synthesized from the sphingosine kinase (Sph) 1 and SphK2 present in cytosol and nucleus, respectively.


Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P)-d7 has been used as a standard in ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC)-Q exactive for validation and quantitative analyses of S1P.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) plays a vital role in mammalian brain and cardiac development. It is essential for maturation of the systemic circulatory system and lymph vessels. Additionally, S1P is implicated in trafficking and effector functions of lymphocytes and other blood stem cells. It also provides protection against various forms of tissue injury. S1P also acts as a tumor promoting lipid. S1P has an ability to enhance erythrocyte glycolysis and oxygen delivery therefore, it can be used to treat tissue hypoxia.

Fluoxetine is a commonly prescribed antidepressant, and the mechanisms of increased bone fragility with its long-term use remain largely unknown. Here, we show that long-term administration of fluoxetine induces the disruption of sphingolipids metabolism in bone marrow adipose tissue (BMAT)through...
