Sphingony sphingolipids are the naturally occurring, skin-identical molecule called Sphinganine.
Twenty potential biomarkers, including L-acetylcarnitine (1), propionylcarnitine (2), unknown (3), phytosphingosine (4), glycoursodeoxycholic acid (5), LPC(14:0) (6), sphinganine (7), LPC(20:5) (8), LPC(16:1) (9), LPC(18:2) (10), LPC(18:3) (11), LPC(22:5) (12), LPC(16:0) (13), LPC(18:1) (14), LPC(22:4) (15), LPC(17:0) (16), LPC(20:2) (17), elaidic carnitine (18), LPC(18:0) (19) and LPC(20:1) (20), were identified by their accurate mass and MSE spectra.
They were identified as L-acetylcarnitine (1), propionylcarnitine (2), unknown (3), phytosphingosine (4), glycoursodeoxycholic acid (5), LPC(14:0) (6), sphinganine (7), LPC(20:5) (8), LPC(16:1) (9), LPC(18:2) (10), LPC(18:3) (11), LPC(22:5) (12), LPC(16:0) (13), LPC( 18:1) (14), LPC(22:4) (15), LPC(17:0) (16), LPC(20:2) (17), elaidic carnitine (18), LPC(18:0) (19) and LPC(20:1) (20), which played significant roles in the formation of AS and contributed to the pharmacological action of XKS (Table 2).
Owing to funding restrictions, the laboratory conducted the sphinganine and sphingosine analyses in two separate batches, each containing case and control samples.
We note, however, that in rats and mice, a subtoxic fumonisin dose will maintain elevated sphinganine when it follows exposure to a higher dose (Enongene et al.
Liquid chromatographic determination of sphinganine and sphingosine: use of the free sphinganine-to-sphingosine ratio as a biomarker for consumption of fumonisins.
According to a study by ARS and University of Georgia scientists, there is another fungal compound that can temporarily reduce sphinganine accumulation in mice.
Peak identification was based on comparison of the retention times with those of authentic calibrators of the lysocompounds (sphingosine, sphinganine, lyso-G1cCer, and lyso-CTH) and those of Cer, G1cCer, and CTH after microwave-assisted deacylation.
The amount of sphinganine was <2% of the amount of the internal calibrator.
