Definition:A phytoceramide is a ceramide where the sphingoid base is hydroxylated at position 4. These backbone bases can be 14 to 20 carbons long, either straight chain or branched. The N-linked fatty acids are typically saturated or monounsaturated with chain lengths from 14 to 26 carbon atoms; the presence of a hydroxyl group on carbon 2 is fairly common. In the illustrated generalised structure, R1 = OH, OX (where X = acyl, glycosyl, phosphate, phosphonate, etc.), or H.
Synonyms:related_synonym: Formula=C5H8NO3R3;   N-acylphytosphingoid base;   SMILES=O[C@H]([*])[C@@H](O)[C@H](C[*])NC([*])=O;   a phytosphingolipid
