Biochem notes

What characteristics do glycolipids have? 1. Sphingosine platform 2. N-linked fatty acid 3. Hydroxyl group linked to a sugar(s)
How are glycolipids different than sphingomyelins? Glycolipids have a sugar group ether-linked to its hydroxyl group, instead of a phosphorylcholine group that is ester-linked in sphingomyelins.
How many sugars do cerebrosides have? And where is it attached? Cerebrosides have simple monosaccharides (1 sugar like glucose or galactose) and it is an ether linkage
Check to make sure glycolipids have ether-linkages and sphingomyelins have ester-linkages - and check why that is!
How are gangliosides different than cerebrosides? And what category are these two types in? Gangliosides have branched chains of multiple sugars instead of a monosaccharide.
what side of the membrane do sugar residues (glycolipids) go on? On the extracellular side of the membrane.
What does amphipathic mean? And where is this characteristic found? Is partly hydrophilic and partly hydrophobic. Amphipathic molecules make up membrane lipids.
What 2 specific types of molecules are amphipathic? Phosphoglycerides and sphingomyelin
