Content of Extractable Gangliosides in Rat Brain during Ethanol Intoxication

Abstract

McILWAiN et al. have established that the content of extractable gangliosides (measured by their N-acetyl-neuraminic acid moiety) is directly related to the excit ability of the nervous tissue1. The N-acetylneuraminic acid is suggested to form a hydrophilic path for the passage of cations through the lipid membrane2. We wished to check whether the decreased… (More)
