Online Inquiry

Creative Proteomics is a pioneer in metabolism service and provides reliable, professional and cost-effective sphingolipid metabolism analysis service in animal. We leverage our rich experience, professional expertise, and advanced technologies to speed up your scientific purposes of sphingolipid metabolism analysis in animal.


Sphingolipids are a class of lipids with eighteen carbon amino-alcohol backbones synthesized from nonsphingolipid precursors. The different modifications of this basic structure leading to a large number of sphingolipids. Although sphingolipids contain various structures and functions, the biosynthesis and degradation pathway for these sphingolipids are the same. Therefore, the sphingolipid metabolism is a mutual network different from a single common biosynthesis pathway and converge into a single common degradation pathway. The simplest forms of sphingolipids are sphingosine, phytosphingosine and dihydrosphingosine. They function as the backbones for other complex groups of sphingolipids. These compounds play important roles in signal transduction and cell recognition. Disorders of sphingolipid metabolism links to various human diseases like Gaucher disease and Fabry disease. Understanding how the sphingolipid metabolism is regulated via contributes to exploring the underlying mechanism behind human diseases. In Creative Proteomics, we provide reliable, rapid and cost-effective sphingolipid metabolism related service to speed up your research aims ranging from diseases diagnosis to gaining new insights in disease mechanism or treatment.
