A mixture of bioactive sphingolipids; found in mammalian cell membranes; make up 2-15% of the total organ phospholipid population but are found at higher concentrations in the brain and myelin sheaths surrounding peripheral nerves; interact with cholesterol to control its distribution within cellular membranes and maintain cholesterol homeostasis in cells; undergo hydrolysis by sphingomyelinase to form ceramides
