The ceramide (Cer) and sphingomyelin (SM) species of cultured differentiated rat cerebellar granule cells and human fibroblasts were characterized by electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry. We identified 35 different species of Cer and 18 species of SM in human fibroblasts, and 35 different species of Cer and 9 species of SM were characterized in rat neurons. The main Cer species of rat cerebellar granule cells contained d18:1 sphingosine linked with palmitic, stearic, or nervonic fatty acid, and the two main SM species were d18:1,16:0 and d18:1,18:0. Both sphingolipids were enriched in detergent-resistant membranes (DRMs; or lipid rafts), and significant differences were found in the sphingolipid patterns of DRMs and of detergent-soluble fractions (DSF) from these cells. In human fibroblasts, the main Cer species were d18:1,16:0, d18:2,16:0, d18:1,24:0, d18:2,24:0, d18:1,24:1, and d18:2,24:1; the most represented species of SM were d18:1,16:0, d18:1,24:0, and d18:1,24:1. In these cells, SM was highly enriched in DRMs and Cer was mainly associated with DSF, and the species found in DRMs were markedly different from those found in DSF.
