Matreya is pleased to offer ceramide and monosialoganglioside GM1 acylated with biotin. These sphingolipid analogues contain a biotin label attached to the amine of the sphingosine moiety via a hexanoic acid linker and are ideal for use in sphingolipid research. The biotin structure allows for attachment of the ganglioside to streptavidin and avidin making them extremely useful for binding to substrates and for toxin detection.
