Brain glycolipids: Insights from genetic modifications of biosynthetic enzymes

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter describes the biosynthesis and roles of the brain glycolipids. It first describes various glycolipids present in the brain. It then describes the phenotype of knockout mice for those deficient in galactosylceramide, glucosylceramide synthase, GM2/CD2 synthase, GD3 synthase, and GM3 synthase.
