Abstract

Gangliosides are sialoglycolipids containing one hydrophilic (the acidic oligosaccharide) and one hydrophobic (the N-acylsphingosine) portion. Due to this chemical property they behave, in water, as soluble amphiphilic compounds and occur as free molecules (monomers), below a certain concentration, and as aggregates (micelles) over that concentration. The concentration at which micellization occurs, that is the critical micellar concentration (CMC) is believed to range,for gangliosides, from 10−5 to 10−4M (1,2,3,4).
