The contents of sialic acid in mouse milk were measured by HPLC methods.

Collection of Mouse Milk. The milk of postpartum female mice was collected during the lactation period.
Effects of EBN on Levels of the Sialic Acid in Mouse Milk
Our research showed that administration with EBN during pregnancy or both pregnancy and lactation periods can enhance the levels of free and oligosaccharide-binding sialic acid in mouse milk. It suggested that the maternal mice were able to obtain more sialic acid during the prenatal period, which may positively affect the brain development of their offspring.

is very protein-rich, and this can also translate into very high concentrations of transgenic protein," National Geographic News quoted Patrick van Berkel, a senior director at the Danish biotech company Genmab, writing in an email.
