Likewise, an increase in ethanolamine (data not shown) and its phosphate was also observed, possibly due to degradation of phosphatidyl ethanolamine, another component of the plasma membrane.
Literature indicates that sphingomyelin (SM), phosphatidylcholine (PC), and phosphatidylserine (PS) increase while phosphatidyl ethanolamine (PE) decrease occurred among different stage patients with hypertension; those phospholipids in plasma are mainly derived from blood platelets and erythrocyte membrane phospholipids.
Some lipids are produced as a compensatory mechanism and they fulfill a protective role, such as c16-ceramide, PS, sphingomyelin (SM), phosphatidyl ethanolamine (PE), and phosphatidylethanol.
Commercial lecithin is a mixture of several natural phospholipids (phosphatidyl choline, phosphatidyl inositol, phosphatidyl ethanolamine, and phosphatidic acid) in oil.
