2S-18:1 Lyso PC


2S-18:1 Lyso PC is a type of lysophosphatidylcholine (Lyso PC). LysoPC is a class of phospholipids, which are essential components of cell membranes. These molecules consist of a glycerol backbone, two fatty acid chains (in the case of Lyso PC, usually one), a phosphate group, and a choline head group.

2S-18:1 LysoPC has a specific molecular structure. The "2S" designation refers to the stereochemistry of the molecule, indicating the configuration of the chiral center at the second carbon of the glycerol backbone. "18:1" indicates that it contains an 18-carbon fatty acid chain with one unsaturated bond (oleic acid) and a 1-carbon chain (palmitoyl group).

LysoPC molecules are found in various biological sources, including cell membranes, where they can be generated through the enzymatic breakdown of phosphatidylcholine (PC) molecules. They can also be obtained from dietary sources and are often used as dietary supplements.

LysoPC molecules play several important roles in biological processes. For example, they are involved in signaling pathways and are implicated in various cellular processes, including inflammation and immune responses. Its ability to alter cellular functions involved in metastasis has major implications for cancer research.

Some lysophosphatidylcholines can function as lipid mediators and signaling molecules. Furthermore, they can activate specific cell surface receptors called G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) or have other effects on cell signaling pathways. These effects can vary depending on the specific molecular structure of the Lyso PC molecule.
