Investigation of the structures of the gangliosides has proven to be very important in the understanding of their biological roles such as regulation of differentiation and growth of cells. We used nuclear magnetic resonance spectros-copy in order to investigate the structure of GA1. In order to do this, the assignment of spectra is a prerequisite. Since GA1 does not have polar sialic acid, the spectral overlap is severe. In order to solve this problem, we use 2D NMR spectroscopy and heteronuclear 1H/13C correlated spectroscopy in this study. Here, we report the complete assignment of the proton and the carbon spectra of the GA1 in DMSO-d6-D20 (98:2, v/v). These assignments will be useful for interpreting 1H and 13C NMR data from uncharacterized oligosaccharides and for determining the linkage position, the number of sugar rings, and the sequence of new ganglioside. Amide proton in ring Ⅲ shows many interring nOes and has intramolecular hydrogen bonding. This appears to be an important factor in tertiary folding of GA1. Based on this assignment, determination of three dimensional structure of GA1 will be carried out. Studies on the conformational properties of GA1 may lead to a better understanding of the molecular basis of its functions.
