Plasma Ceramides

A novel biomarker of unstable atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease

Ceramides are complex lipids that play a central role in cell membrane integrity, cellular stress response, inflammatory signaling, and apoptosis. Synthesis of ceramides from saturated fats and sphingosine occurs in all tissues. Ceramides accumulate in tissues not suited for lipid storage during conditions of metabolic dysfunction and dyslipidemia. Three specific ceramides have been identified as highly linked to cardiovascular disease: Cer(16:0), Cer(18:0), Cer(24:1).
