Volcano plot of the fold changes in the levels of doxSLs and concentrations of l-Ser and l-Ala. DoxCer (a) and doxDHCer (b) between aged and young mice and the corresponding p-values (white square: cerebral cortex; black triangle: liver; white circle: femoral muscle; black diamond: epididymal fat tissues). Each data point represents the mean value of five mice per group and different carbon chain-length and degree of unsaturation of fatty acid in each metabolite. A log 10 scale is used for the x-axis. c Fold changes (aged/young) in the mean concentrations of l-Ser and l-Ala. P-values are indicated for the metabolites with significant differences in abundance between groups. ***P < 0.001, **P < 0.01, *P < 0.05
