Axonal transport of gangliosides in the goldfish optic nerve.

PMID:  5049309     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Radioactive glucosamine and N-acetylmannosamine injected into the goldfish eye are incorporated into gangliosides that undergo rapid axonal transport to the optic nerve terminals. All ganglioside fractions are labeled. These data provide the first evidence that axonal transport has a role in neuronal ganglioside function and metabolism.
