Synthetic Sphingosines with Sphingoid Bases other than C18

Mammalian cells contain mostly D-erythro sphingosines with C18 and C20 bases and a smaller amount with C16 bases. Some bacteria and fungi have predominantly C16 or even shorter sphingosine bases. C17 sphingosine bases are easily separated by reverse-phase HPLC and readily identified by mass spectrometry. They are also usually absent from, or present in low amounts in, natural systems reducing the need for background subtractions.1
