Accession:GO:1905329 term browser browse the term
Definition:The directed movement of a sphingoid long-chain base, sometimes referred to as long-chain base, or sphingoid base, into, out of or within a cell, or between cells, by means of some agent such as a transporter or pore. Sphingoid long-chain bases are long-chain aliphatic amines that are the fundamental building blocks of sphingolipids. The main mammalian sphingoid long-chain bases are dihydrosphingosine and sphingosine, while dihydrosphingosine and phytosphingosine are the main sphingoid long-chain bases in yeast.
Synonyms:exact_synonym: sphingoid base(1+) transport
 narrow_synonym: dihydrosphingosine transport;   phytosphingosine transport;   sphingosine transport
 related_synonym: long-chain base transport;   sphingoid transport
