概要 One of the phospholipids, sphingomyelin (SM) is the most abundant component of mammalian membranes in brain and nervous tissues. It plays an important role for apoptosis, aging, and signal transduction with cations. Recently, Yappert and co-workers have shown that human lens sphingomyelin and its hydrogenated derivative, dihydrosphingomyelin (DHSM) are interacted with Ca2+ ions to develop human cataracts. In this study, we investigate conformational differences between an isolated SM/DHSM molecule and Ca2+-coordinated form by using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. B3LYP functional and 6-3 G(d, p) double-zeta split-valence basis set is used for geometry optimization and normal mode analysis. One of resultant conformers of SMs has hydrogen bonding between hydroxyl and phosphate group, whereas another conformer has hydrogen bonding between hydroxyl and amide group.
