Glycosphingolipids of Equine Erythrocytes Membranes: Complete Characterization of a Fucoganglioside

The major glycosphingolipids of mammalian erythrocytes have been demonstrated to be characteristic of the species from which they are derived.1 In equine erythrocytes the predominant glycolipids are hematoside (II3 NeuGc-LacCer)2 and its derivative which contains O-acetyl ester at the N-glycolylneuraminyl moiety.3–5 In connection with the previous study,5 it was found that equine erythrocytes have additional minor ganglioside components. A fucoganglioside purified from the minor ganglioside components was studied for its chemical structure by means of nuclear magnetic resonance (MNR) spectrometry, and destructive methods.
