Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


3H labeled GM1 ganglioside has been injected in mice intravenously, subcutaneously or intramuscularly. Absorbtion, organ and cellular distribution were studied in different organs (blood, liver, muscle, kidney, spinal cord, brain). 3H-GM1 catabolism and elimination was also investigated. Results show that injected GM1 reaches different organs, binds to cellular membranes, and remains unaltered long after administration. A portion of injected GM1 is catabolized to water.
