Monosialoganglioside GM3 from canine blood

≥98%, lyophilized powder



Analysis Note

The product is soluble at 20 mg/mL in a 1:1 mixture of chloroform and ethanol with 5% water. The resulting solution is colorless

Biochem/physiol Actions

Monosialoganglioside-GM3 is the most common ganglioside and the major ganglioside in non-neuronal cell membranes. It inhibits epidermal cell growth and is involved in the biosynthesis and metabolism of all higher gangliosides.

General description

Gangliosides are major constituents of neuronal cell membranes and endoplasmic reticulum. They contain a sialated polysaccharide chain linked to ceramide through a β-glycosidic linkage. For classification of gangliosides see Svennerholm, L., et al. (eds.), Structure and Function of Gangliosides, New York, Plenum, 1980.
