Glycolipids articles from across Nature Portfolio

Glycolipids are glycoconjugates of lipids that are generally found on the extracellular face of eukaryotic cellular membranes, and function to maintain stability of the membrane and to facilitate cell–cell interactions. Glycolipids can also act as receptors for viruses and other pathogens to enter cells. Gangliosides and cerebrosides that form glycosphingolipids (carbohydrate + sphingolipid) are two classes of glycolipids.
