Abstract Sphingolipids play a key role in cells as structural components of membrane lipid bilayers and signaling molecules implicated in important physiological and pathological processes. Their metabolism is tightly regulated. Mechanisms controlling sphingolipid metabolism are far from being completely understood. However, they already reveal the integration of sphingolipids in the whole metabolic network as signaling devices that coordinate different metabolic pathways. A picture of sphingolipids integrated into metabolic networks might help to understand sphingolipid homeostasis. This review describes recent advances in the regulation of de novo sphingolipid synthesis with a focus on the bridges that exist with other metabolic pathways and the importance of this crosstalk in the control of sphingolipid homeostasis.
