    Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) is a biologically active metabolite of plasma-membrane sphingolipids that is essential for immune-cell trafficking. Its concentration is increased in many inflammatory conditions, such as asthma and autoimmunity. Much of the immune function of S1P results from the...

    A definition of the term "sphingosine kinase" is presented. It refers to a kinase that catalyses the phosphorylation of sphingosine. The stimulation of sphingosine kinase activity and/or formation of sphingosine-1-phosphate is explained. Information on the extracellular occurrence of sphingosine...

    We examined the formation of sphingolipid mediators in platelets, which abundantly store, and release extracellularly, sphingosine 1-phosphate (Sph-1-P). Challenging [3H]Sph-labeled platelet suspensions with thrombin or 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate (TPA) resulted in a decrease in Sph-1-P...
