Abstract

Inborn errors in ganglioside metabolism produce large changes in cellular functions, but as yet the biochemical role of gangliosides has not been established. Several models have been used to elucidate their role and some encouraging data have been reported. Thus, theoretical as well as biochemical studies have implicated gangliosides in the functioning of specialized plasma membranes (1). Nevertheless, the complexity of the nervous tissue restricts the understanding of their precise functional role.
