Natural GSL Extraction Service

Natural GSL Extraction Service

CD BioGlyco has extensive experience in the research of glycobiology and our professional team provides high-quality and comprehensive natural glycosphingolipid (GSL) extraction services while ensuring that clients receive a high-purity product in the end.

GSL Plays an Important Role in Living Organisms

GSL is a biologically important complex lipid molecule composed of sphingosine, fatty acids, and carbohydrates. It is widely present in cell membranes of various organisms, including those of plants, animals, and microorganisms, and is associated with cell signaling, cell differentiation, and immune response, among other life processes. Glycosphingolipids facilitate intercellular signaling, participate in angiogenesis and development, influence tumorigenesis and progression, and participate in the invasion process of infectious pathogens. Therefore, an in-depth study of the structure and function of glycosphingolipids is important for revealing their biological significance and elucidating the mechanisms of disease progression. Nevertheless, the synthesis of GSL is usually complex and requires multi-step reactions. Although many synthetic methods have been developed, they still require fine control of the reaction and high purity of the raw material, which is costly, making it particularly important to extract GSLs from natural sources.
