Description

General description

1-deoxysphinganine is synthesized by the condensation of palmitic acid with alanine or glycine in the presence of enzyme serine palmitoyltransferase (SPT). It is metabolized to 1-deoxyceramides.

Application

1-deoxysphinganine may be used for the complex preparation with bovine serum albumin for cytotoxicity testing in MN9D dopaminergic neuroblastoma cell line. It is also suitable for use as a neurotoxic agent in human CD8+ T cells.

Biochem/physiol Actions

1-deoxysphinganine elicits cytotoxicity towards dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons by disrupting the neuronal cytoskeleton formation. High levels of 1-deoxysphinganine in diabetic patients may contribute to the reduction of pancreatic β cell functionality. In hereditary sensory and autonomic neuropathy type I, mutation in the serine palmitoyltransferase gene results in altered substrate specificity, resulting in the accumulation of 1-deoxysphinganine.
