Abstract In this review an updated overview of current improvements on thin-layer chromatography (TLC) of gangliosides over the past decade is provided. Basic general techniques and special advice is given for successful separation of glycosphingolipids. New approaches concerning continuous and multiple development, and several preparative TLC methods are also included. Emphasis is placed on TLC immunostaining and related techniques, i.e. practical applications of carbohydrate-specific antibodies, toxins and bacteria, viruses, lectins and eukaryotic cells. Thus, this review on ganglioside TLC summarizes its power as an analytical tool for a wide range of purposes.
