Chemical Psychosine

Name Psychosine
CAS Type 1 Name beta-D-Galactopyranoside, 2-amino-3-hydroxy-4-octadecenyl, (R-(R*,S*-(E)))-
Equivalent Terms Galactoside, Sphingosine | Galactosylsphingosine | Sphingosine Galactoside
CAS Registry Number 2238-90-6
Definition An intermediate in the biosynthesis of cerebrosides. It is formed by reaction of sphingosine with UDP-galactose and then itself reacts with fatty acid-Coenzyme A to form the cerebroside.
