All these processes--the effects of fumonisins on sphingolipid metabolism, the pathways altered by perturbation of sphingosine metabolism, and the complex cellular behaviors regulated by sphingoipids--must be borne in mind when evaluating the pathologic effects of FUMonisins.

Quantitative measurement of different ceramide species from crude cellular extracts by electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS).

The developed electrospray tandem mass spectrometry (ESI-MS/MS) technique is capable of quantifying different CER species from crude cellular lipid extracts and enables accurate and rapid analysis of CER from small samples without prior separation steps, thus providing a useful tool for signal transduction research.

Simultaneous quantitative determination method for sphingolipid metabolites by liquid chromatography/ionspray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.

High-Performance Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry of Glycosphingolipids: I. Structural Characterization of Molecular Species of GlcCer and IV3βGal-Gb4Cer

A new HPLC/FAB/MS system was successfully applied to the structural characterization of the molecular species of neutral glycosphingolipids, and the system is a quite promising for development into a quantitative method for glycospheric characterization with high sensitivity and specificity.

Structure elucidation of glycosphingolipids and gangliosides using high-performance tandem mass spectrometry.

Glycosphingolipids and gangliosides have been investigated by using fast atom bombardment high-performance tandem mass spectrometry (FABMS/MS) and the exclusion of most of the interfering signals from the matrix allows the identification of pertinent fragments at low mass.

Rapid and selective identification of molecular species in phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin by conditional neutral loss scanning and MS3.

This systematic analysis of molecular species of phospholipids containing choline (Ch), such as phosphatidylcholine (PC) and sphingomyelin (SM), by conditional neutral loss scanning, with subsequent analyses by MS3, appears to be a very effective and sensitive method.
