Monosialotetrahexosylganglioside Sodium (GM1) pig brain (37758-47-7) Description

Gangliosides are major constituents of neuronal cell membranes and endoplasmic reticulum. They contain a sialated polysaccharide chain linked to ceramide through a β-glycosidic linkage.

Galactosidases are enzymes that breakdown GM1. GM1, also known as monosialotetrahexosylganglioside, it s the “prototype” ganglioside, is a member of the ganglio series of gangliosides which contain one sialic acid residue. GM1 has important physiological properties and impacts neuronal plasticity and repair mechanisms, and the release of neurotrophins in the brain. Besides its function in the physiology of the brain, GM1 acts as the site of binding for both cholera toxin and E. coli heat-labile enterotoxin (Traveller’s diarrhea).
