D-erythro-C8-ceramine ≥98% (by TLC)Supplier: Enzo Life Sciences
Ceramide-activated protein kinase activator.
C₈ ceramine is an analog of ceramide in which the amide is substituted with an amine. This substitution renders it inert to ceramidases. It is highly effective at induction of apoptosis in U937 cells. Ceramine induces peak DNA fragmentation in 6 hours compared to 18 hours for C₈ ceramide.
