UCLASO-M25 showed a high degree of binding to the lectin. The isolated gangliosides after base treatment converted to a slower migrating species identical with G03 (Figure 1). In one of the biopsied specimens (UCLA-HL-85), O-acetyl G03 constituted 18% of the total gangliosides and the tissue was devoid of any detectable G02 in an overloaded TLC. In the absence of O-acetyl GM3, the occurrence of O-acetyl G03 with G03 and their relative ratios in the M-25 melanoma cell line and in biopsied melanoma (UCLA-HL-85) suggest that the precursor of O-acetyl G03 could be G03.
