On a Molecular, Microscale Fingerprinting of Gangliosides

  • Karl-Anders Karlsson
Chapter
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 71)

Summary

Mass spectrometry of intact ganglioside derivatives has been shown to afford a specific information on type, number and sequence of sugars, as well as ceramide structure. This is illustrated here for a hematoside with N-glycolylneuraminic acid and a di-sialyldihexosylceramide. As shown elsewhere, this novel technique, needing only 10 micrograms for a spectrum, is generally applicable to all types of glycolipids, including complex blood group fuco-lipids.
