Abstract

The long-chain base composition of the total gangliosides from fetal brain of human, rat, mouse, rabbit, cat, dog, and chicken has been investigated during prenatal life. All the analyzed ganglioside mixtures contained the C18:1- and C18:0-long-chain bases, the latter covering 2-5% of the total long-chain base content. The C20-long-chain bases, which are components of the total ganglioside mixture from adult animals, were absent.
