Nematodes were found to synthesize phosphorylcholine-containing molecules not present in higher organisms, i.e. phosphorylcholine-substituted glycosphingolipids and (glyco)proteins. Investigations on the biosynthesis of these structures provided first biochemical evidence for the presence of the Kennedy and Bremer-Greenberg pathways in the model organism Caenorhabditis elegans.
