Acidic Glycosphingolipids

A subclass of GLYCOSPHINGOLIPIDS containing large polar heads made up of several sugar units. One or more of their terminal sugar units are bound to a negatively charged molecule at pH 7. Members of this class include: GANGLIOSIDES, uronoglycosphingolipids, SULFOGLYCOSPHINGOLIPIDS, phosphoglycosphingolipids, and phosphonoglycosphingolipids.

02/01/1996 - "This cellular membrane over-expression and shedding of acidic glycosphingolipids into the interstitial spaces and blood of cancer patients may play a central role in increased tumour cell growth, lack of immune cell recognition and neovascularization and could represent a molecular target for cancer therapy."
09/01/1999 - "Two acidic glycosphingolipids (gangliosides) derived from mouse macrophage membranes and separated by thin-layer chromatography have a strong cytostatic effect on human and mouse tumor cells. "
01/01/1988 - "Neutral and acidic glycosphingolipids of Friend cells were characterized in 1) undifferentiated Friend cells (745A), 2) differentiated Friend cells induced with dimethyl-sulfoxide, and 3) solid tumors grown in mice after subcutaneous implantation of Friend cells. "
02/15/1992 - "I3SO3-GalCer, which was contained in the original tissues of uterine endometrial adenocarcinomas, disappeared completely from the cultured cells at the 70th doubling time, whereas II3SO3-LacCer and ganglio series sulfoglycosphingolipids, which were originally contained in a trace amount or not present at all in the cancer tissues, became the major components in the total acidic glycosphingolipids in the cultured cells. "
01/15/1992 - "In particular, more than 90% of the acidic glycosphingolipids in the mucinous cystadenocarcinoma is comprised of sulfolipids, which are hardly detected in normal ovary and are contained in concentrations of less than 40% in the other type of ovarian tumors. "
