Description

Application

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.
