Ceramide 3  (Synonyms: N-Stearoyl phytosphingosine)

Cat. No.: HY-141582 Purity: ≥98.0%
COA Handling Instructions

C18 Phytoceramide (t18:0/18:0) (Cer(t18:0/18:0)) is a bioactive sphingolipid found in the stratum corneum of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, wheat grain, and mammalian epidermis. Cer(t18:0/18:0) consists of a phytosphingosine backbone amine linked to a C18 fatty acid chain. Cer(t18:0/18:0) has the function of regulating apoptosis, cell differentiation, proliferation of smooth muscle cells and inhibition of mitochondrial respiratory chain. It also suppresses the expression of allergic cytokines IL-4, TNF-α, and transcription factors c-Jun and NF-κB in histone-stimulated mouse skin tissue. Formulations containing cer(t18:0/18:0) have been used as skin protectants in cosmetics as they reduce water loss and prevent epidermal dehydration and irritation.

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
