Plasmalogens are a sort of ether phospholipid portrayed by the vicinity of a vinyl ether linkage at the sn-1 position and an ester linkage at the sn-2 position. In vertebrates, the sn-1 position is ordinarily determined from C16:0, C18:0, or C18:1 greasy alcohols while the sn-2 position is most regularly involved by polyunsaturated unsaturated fats. The most well-known head gatherings exhibits in mammalian plasmalogens are ethanolamine or choline. Plasmalogens are found in various human tissues, with specific enhancement in the apprehensive, safe, and cardiovascular framework. In human heart tissue, about 30â40% of choline glycerophospholipids are plasmalogens. Considerably all the more striking is the way that just about 30% of the glycerophospholipids in the grown-up human cerebrum and up to 70% of myelin sheath ethanolamine glycerophospholipids are plasmalogen.
