glycosphingolipid

 [gli″ko-sfing″o-lip´id]
a fatty acid containing the carbohydrate sugar glucose or galactose.

gly·co·sphin·go·lip·id

(glī'kō-sfing'gō-lip'id),
A ceramide linked to one or more sugars through the terminal OH group; included as glycosphingolipids are cerebrosides, gangliosides, and ceramide oligosaccharides (oligoglycosylceramides). The prefix glyc- may be replaced by gluc-, galact-, lact-, etc.
Synonym(s): ceramide saccharide
