Some properties of the enzyme activity that catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylgalactosamine from UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine to exogenous lactosylceramide-II3-sulfate (SM3) and N-acetylneuraminosyllactosylceramide (GM3) were studied using the enzyme preparation solubilized from the 100,000 X g pellet of 6-day-old rat brain. The products from SM3 and GM3 were identified as gangliotriaosylceramide-II3-sulfate (SM2) and N-acetylneuraminosylgangliotriaosylceramide (GM2), respectively, by TLC… Expand
