glycopeptide

 [gli″ko-pep´tīd]
any of a class of peptides that contain carbohydrates, including those that contain amino sugars.

gly·co·pep·tide

(glī'kō-pep'tīd),
A compound containing sugar(s) linked to amino acids (or peptides), with the latter preponderant, as in bacterial cell walls. Compare: peptidoglycan.
