Description

Amino Acid Sequence

Cer-Glc-Gal-GalNAc-Gal

General description

Gangliosides are major constituents of neuronal cell membranes and endoplasmic reticulum; contain a sialylated 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.

Packaging

0.5, 1 mg in glass bottle

Biochem/physiol Actions

Removing the sialic acid from monosialoganglioside GM1 inhibits its ability to bind cholera toxin. Asialoganglioside GM1 does not block the binding of cholera toxin to cellular GM1.
