Abstract The function of a cholinergic-specific ganglioside, Chol-1alpha, was investigated. The release of acetylcholine from synaptosomes was inhibited by anti-Chol-1alpha monoclonal antibody but not by monoclonal antibodies against other brain gangliosides tested. Chol-1alpha ganglioside stimulated the high-affinity choline uptake by synaptosomes and consequently enhanced acetylcholine synthesis, resulting in an increased release of acetylcholine from synaptosomes. The memory and learning abilities of rats given anti-Chol-1alpha antibody were remarkably suppressed. These in vitro and in vivo studies suggest that Chol-1alpha ganglioside plays a pivotal role in cholinergic synaptic transmission and participates in cognitive function.
