Gangliosides of the human alimentary mucosa were purified and analysed with thin-layer chromatography and gas chromatography. The content of ganglioside neuraminic acid was 0.16 mumol/g dry weight in the stomach, 0.07 mumol/g dry weight in the small intestine and 0.11 mumol/g dry weight in the large intestine. Mono- and disialosylhemosides were the major(More)

The five major gangliosides of the human alimentary mucosa were purified with silicic acid column chromatography and with thin-layer chromatography. The linkages in the carbohydrate portion were analysed by permethylation with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. A succesful analysis of the linkages of two hematosides and three tetraglycosylceramides was(More)
