6 Claims for Presence of Neu5Gc in Neural Tissues A number of studies have claimed to find small amounts of Neu5Gc-containing glycans in neural cells and tissues. It is worth considering these studies in some detail. 1 Tumor Gangliosides Increased Neu5Gc expression is a feature of human cancers [87], and it might be expected that neural tumors would express Neu5Gc. An extensive characterization of mouse brain tumor gangliosides by Seyfried and colleagues has indeed repeatedly found Neu5Gc present in these gangliosides.
