Figure 2: Left: Sphingomyelin is a sphingolipid with a phosphocholine headgroup. Sphingosine is an amino alcohol with 18 C atoms, 2 hydroxyl groups, one amino group, and one C=C double bond in the trans configuration. Right: Cerebroside is a glycosphingolipid with a sugar residue (galactose or glucose) attached to sphingosine through a glycosidic bond
