Abstract Bovine thyroid glands are known to contain a complex array of gangliosides. One of the predominant gangliosides was isolated and analyzed by gas-liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry. The carbohydrate composition was fucose, N-acetylneuraminic acid, galactose, N-acetylgalactosamine, and glucose in molar ratios of 1:1:2:1:1. The structure of the ganglioside was identified as:
