glycolipid

 [gli″ko-lip´id]
a lipid containing carbohydrate groups, usually galactose but also glucose, inositol, or others; the glycolipids include the cerebrosides.

gly·co·lip·id

(glī'kō-lip'id),
A lipid with one or more covalently attached sugars.

glycolipid

/gly·co·lip·id/ (gli″ko-lip´id) a lipid containing carbohydrate groups, usually galactose but also glucose, inositol, or others; while it can describe those lipids derived from either glycerol or sphingosine, with or without phosphates, the term is usually used to denote the sphingosine derivatives lacking phosphate groups (glycosphingolipids).

glycolipid

(glī′kə-lĭp′ĭd)
n.
A lipid that contains one or more carbohydrate groups.

glycolipid

[glī′kōlip′id]
Etymology: Gk, glykys, sweet, lipos, fat
a compound that consists of a lipid and a carbohydrate, usually galactose, found primarily in the tissue of the nervous system, especially the myelin sheath and the ganglion cells.

(glī'kō-lip'id)
A lipid with one or more covalently attached sugars.
