Deficiency of ganglioside biosynthesis in metastatic human melanoma cells: relevance of CMP-NeuAc:LacCer alpha 2-3 sialyltransferase (GM3 synthase).


The glycosphingolipid patterns were analyzed on two clones derived from a human melanoma cell line and selected for their respectively high and low metastatic ability in immunosuppressed newborn rats. Conversely to the weakly metastatic cells which exhibited a pattern similar to that of the parental cell line, highly metastatic human melanoma cells appeared… (More)
