Sialic acid is a vital component of brain gangliosides which play an essential role in the transmission and storage of information in the brain. The concentration of bound sialic acid in gangliosides and free sialic acid in the brain cortex of eight different mammals [human, chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes), rat (Rattus norvegicus), mouse (Mus musculus), rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus), sheep (Ovis aries), cow (Bos indicus) and pig (Sus scrofa)] were compared. Total sialic acid concentration (890… CONTINUE READING
