The basic structure of a glycolipid is defined by the presence of a carbohydrate monosaccharide or oligosaccharide bound to a lipid moiety. A great article on the “Nomenclature of glycolipids” can be found here. Glycolipids are lipids with a carbohydrate attached by a glycosidic bond. There are many types of glycolipids found in nature.
