Abstract

It is well known that various mammalian erythrocyte membranes contain different types of major glycosphingolipid which are considerably species-specific (Table I). These glycosphingolipids are not only structural components of membranes but also important antigenic sites on cell surfaces. Specific antibodies against individual glycosphingolipids are useful for various purposes in immunochemical and membrane research.
