Chemical G(M3) Ganglioside

Name G(M3) Ganglioside
Equivalent Terms Ganglioside GM3 | GM3, Ganglioside | Hematoside | II3NeuAcLacCer | Lactosylceramide, Sialyl | Sialyllactosylceramide | Sialyl Lactosylceramide
Definition A ganglioside present in abnormally large amounts in the brain and liver due to a deficient biosynthetic enzyme, G(M3):UDP-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase. Deficiency of this enzyme prevents the formation of G(M2) ganglioside from G(M3) ganglioside and is the cause of an anabolic sphingolipidosis.
