Further Information
Phospholipids are the active components of lecithins and indicate phosphorus containing lipids, glycolipids and sphingolipids. Glycerophospholipids and sphingolipids are essential building-blocks of all living cell membranes. Lecithin fractions that contain no less than 80% phospholipids are referred to as phospholipids. Phospholipids with an amount of 80% or more of a chemically defined entity are identified by their specific names, e.g. phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), phosphatidylserine (PS), phosphatidylinositol (PI), glycerophosphocholine (GPC) and phosphatidic acid (PA).

Sphingolipids
Sphingolipids contain long-chain amino alcohol instead of glycerol. Phosphocholine is esterified into amino alcohol and the amino group is connected to a fatty acid. The most import molecule from a physiological point of view is sphingomyelin.
