Term Name: sphingoid long-chain base transport Search Ontology:
Synonyms:
  • dihydrosphingosine transport
  • long-chain base transport
  • phytosphingosine transport
  • sphingoid base(1+) transport
  • sphingoid transport
  • sphingosine transport
Definition: The directed movement of a sphingoid long-chain base, sometimes referred to as long-chain base, or sphingoid base, into, out of or within a cell, or between cells, by means of some agent such as a transporter or pore. Sphingoid long-chain bases are long-chain aliphatic amines that are the fundamental building blocks of sphingolipids. The main mammalian sphingoid long-chain bases are dihydrosphingosine and sphingosine, while dihydrosphingosine and phytosphingosine are the main sphingoid long-chain bases in yeast. 27136724
