Scheme for the acylation of sphinganine by (dihydro)ceramide synthase emphasizing the potential for the localization of the charged groups of the sphingoid base and fatty acyl-CoA (Panel A) resembling those found in fumonisin B1 (panel B). Panel C shows the structure of the fumonisin (aminopentol) backbone alone (AP1).
