Natural and Synthetic Phospholipids

Phospholipids are well known for their role as the main component of membranes where they form the lipid bilayer due to their amphipathic character. However, phospholipids are also important as cellular messengers, enzyme activators, and more. Hundreds of different phospholipid molecular species are present in cells, each with variations in phospholipid head groups or acyl tails that give them unique properties. Matreya offers an extensive list of highly purified natural and synthetic phospholipids to meet your research needs.

Sphingolipid Lysosomal Storage Diseases

Lysosomal storage diseases are classified according to the compounds accumulated in the lysosomes. This includes sphingolipidoses, oligosaccharidoses, mucolipidoses, mucopolysaccharidoses, lipoprotein storage disorders, lysosomal transport defects, and neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses. Because the lysosome lacks sufficient enzyme activity to metabolize a particular lipid compound, substrates in lysosomes accumulate. Disease can also result from an inability to transport a particular lipid out of the lysosome.

Sphingolipidoses (sphingolipid lysosomal storage disorders) result in an accumulation of various sphingolipids in the lysosome. Ten main sphingolipidoses affect the glycosphingolipid pathway: Farber’s, Krabbe, Gaucher, Metachromatic Leukodystrophy, Fabry, Sandhoff, Niemann-Pick, Sialidosis, Tay-Sachs, and GM1 gangliosidosis. All of these disorders are characterized by an accumulation of sphingolipids in the lysosome due to enzyme deficiency or ineffective transport of lipids from the lysosome.
