  • Relevance

    A member of the family of glycosphingolipids, monosialoanglioside acts as a receptor and antigen for cholera. GM1 ganglioside, one of the glycosphingolipids widely distributed in all tissues, occurs in highest concentrations in the central nervous system (CNS). It is primarily located in the outer surface of the mammalian cell's plasma membrane and in synaptic membranes of the CNS. GM1 ganglioside modulates a number of cell surface and receptor activities as well as neuronal differentiation and development, protein phosphorilation and synaptic function.

The reason that species is not mentioned on the datasheet is because the target is species independent. The target is Ganglioside GM1, a molecule composed of a glycosphingolipid (ceramide and oligosaccharide) with sialic acids linked on the sugar chain. The molecular formula of this lipid is C77H139N3O31.

Therefore, as long as your samples have this molecule present, this antibody will be suitable.

Thank you for your enquiry. I can confirm these are different antibodies, which have been tested in different applications. Tested applications covered by our guarnatee are listed on teh online datasheets: ab23943  Anti-Ganglioside GM1 antibody is tested ICC-IF, not tested WB ab31119  Anti-Ganglioside GM1 antibody  is tested in WB but not ICC-IF   All tested application information is stated on our datasheets, and these are updated as soon as any new information is brought to our attention. In this case, as one antibody is tested in ICC-IF and the other in WB, I am sorry we would regrettably not be able to guarantee either of these antibodies for both applications. However, if you would like to test one of these  antibody in the untested application, please contact me again replying to this message prior to the purchase as you would be eligible for our testing discount program. I would be pleased to send further information. I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further advice or information in this regard.
