A sulfated glucosylceramide from rat kidney.

A novel sulfated glycosphingolipid containing a sulfated glucosyl residue was isolated from rat kidney and purified to homogeneity by column chromatographies with DEAE-Sephadex and silica beads. By compositional analyses, permethylation studies, one- and two-dimensional proton magnetic resonance spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy, negative secondary ion mass spectrometry, solvolysis, and immunostaining on thin layer chromatogram, the structure of this glycolipid was proposed to be HSO3-3Glc beta 1-1Cer (where Cer is ceramide). The ceramide portion consisted of 4-D-hydroxysphinganine as the sole long chain base, and the fatty acid consisted of predominantly tetracosanoic acid, deduced from both composition analysis and negative secondary ion mass spectrometry. The yield of glucosyl sulfatide was about 5 nmol/g of tissue, being about three times as much as that of lactosylceramide sulfate.[1]
