Fluorescently labeled glycosphingolipids are frequently used to gain insight into their localization. However, the attachment of a fluorophore to the glycan part or-more commonly-to the lipid part of glycosphingolipids is known to alter the biophysical properties and can perturb the biological function of the probe. Presented here is the synthesis of novel glycosphingolipid probes with mono- and disaccharide head groups and ceramide moieties containing fatty acids of varying chain length (C4 to C20). These glycosphingolipids bear an azide or an alkyne group as chemical reporter to which a fluorophore can be attached through a bioorthogonal ligation reaction. The fluorescent tag and any linker connected to it can be chosen in a flexible manner. We demonstrate the suitability of the probes by selective visualization of the plasma membrane of living cells by confocal microscopy techniques. Whereas the derivatives with the shorter fatty acids can be directly applied to HEK 293T cells, the hydrophobic glycosphingolipids with longer fatty acids can be delivered to cells using fusogenic liposomes.</dcterms:abstract> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:creator>Hauck, Christof R.</dc:creator> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:title>Synthetic Glycosphingolipids for Live-Cell Labeling</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Batroff, Ellen</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Wittmann, Valentin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Bachmann, Verena</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="">2016-09-12T13:08:52Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Bachmann, Verena</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hauck, Christof R.</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:issued>2016-07-20</dcterms:issued> <dc:creator>Dauner, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Batroff, Ellen</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Dauner, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2016-09-12T13:08:52Z</dc:date> <bibo:uri rdf:resource=""/> <dc:contributor>Wittmann, Valentin</dc:contributor> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource=""/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
