Résumé : Ceramide trihexoside synthesized by rat spleen homogenates can be degraded by α-galactosidases from coffee beans and ficin, while β-galactosidase has no effect. Ceramide trihexoside from rat spleen thus has the same terminal α-galactosyl configuration as the corresponding lipid recently characterized from different human tissue. © 1972.
