Abstract

To examine the effect of antiglycolipid antibodies on demyelination, myelinated cultures of embryonic mouse spinal cords were treated by antigalactocerebroside (anti-GC), anti-GM1; and anti-GM4 antisera, and the lipid composition of the cultures were studied. The anti-GC antiserum-treated cultures, which exhibited severe morphologic signs of demyelination, revealed a significant reduction of cerebroside. The anti-GM4 or anti-GM1 antiserum-treated cultures, which exhibited mild degrees of demyelination, also had low contents of cerebroside. These results support our previous data showing that antiglycolipid antibodies cause demyelination in cultured mouse spinal cords, and suggest a possible role of myelin-specific glycolipids in the demyelination process.
