Chemical Galactosylceramides

Name Galactosylceramides
Equivalent Terms Ceramides, Galactosyl | Galactocerebrosides | Galactosyl Ceramides
Definition Cerebrosides which contain as their polar head group a galactose moiety bound in glycosidic linkage to the hydroxyl group of ceramide. Their accumulation in tissue, due to a defect in beta-galactosidase, is the cause of galactosylceramide lipidosis or globoid cell leukodystrophy.
