  2. 2. Glycolipid  Glycolipids are glycoconjugates of lipids.  The term glycolipid designates any compound containing one or more monosaccharide residues bound by a glycosidic linkage .  It is a structural lipid .
  3. 3. They are generally found on the extracellular face of eukaryotic cellular membrane.
  4. 4. Synthesis Of Glycolipid Synthesis of glycolipids occurs with the help of enzymes that sequentially add sugars to the lipid.
  5. 5. Types of Glycolipid 1. Cerebrosides-Cerebroside (from cerebro=brain) are glycolipids that are found primarily in the brain and peripheral (other areas of the body) nervous tissue. Function: Provide protective coating to each nerve and act as insulator.
  6. 6. Types of Lipid 2. Gangliosides- These glycolipids (glycosphingolipids) are neutral (uncharged). The gangliosides are acidic in pH and they are the more complex of the glycolipids.
  7. 7. Type of Lipid 3. Sulfoglycosphingolipids-These cerebrosides are also called sulfatides, They are simply cerebrosides with a sulfate residue on the sugar portion of glycolipid. Ocurrance: this particular lipid is found primarily in the medulated nerve fibres.
  8. 8. Degradation of Glycolipid lipids are required to be broken down, enzymes in the lysosome of the cell help to remove the sugar subunits.
  9. 9. Metabolism of Glycolipid in Human  The glycolipids are type of lipids that is utilised by the human as well as other forms of life.  Glycolipids are derivatives of ceramides.  Glycolipids are simply fats that are bonded to sugars.
  10. 10. Functions of Glycolipid  The glycolipids are an essential part of cell membranes.  Glycolipids also help determine the blood group of an individual.  Glycolipids act as receptors at the surface of the red blood cell.  some viruses, bacteria (eg., cholera) use glycolipids on their cell surface as well. This helps the immune system destroy and clear the pathogen from the body.
  11. 11. Functions of Glycolipid  It provide energy. • The antigens which determine blood types belong glycolipids.
