Sphingosine is an amino alcohol most commonly characterized by an 18-carbon unsaturated hydrocarbon chain (D-erythro-Sphingosine C-18, Item No. 10007907). However, the hydrocarbon chain length of sphingosine, and the related dihydrosphingosine, can vary from 12-26 carbons in mammalian tissues.1,2 D-erythro-Sphingosine C-15 is a naturally-occurring but rare form of sphingosine. It is intended to be used as an internal standard in the analysis of sphingoid compounds by chromatographic or spectrometric methods.
