Abstract
Five glucocerebroside molecular species, SJC-1-SJC-5, have been isolated from the less polar lipid fraction of a chloroform/methanol extract of the sea cucumber Stichopus japonicus. The structures of these glucocerebroside molecular species were determined on the basis of chemical and spectroscopic evidence. SJC-1, SJC-2, and SJC-3 are typical sphingosine- and phytosphingosine-type glucocerebroside molecular species with nonhydroxylated and hydroxylated fatty acyl moieties. SJC-4 and SJC-5 are also sphingosine-type glucocerebroside molecular species with hydroxylated fatty acyl moieties, although they are new glucocerebroside molecular species with unique sphingosine bases.
