A galactocerebroside

A galactocerebroside (or galactosylceramide) is a type of cerebroside consisting of a ceramide with a galactose residue at the 1-hydroxyl moiety.

The galactose is cleaved by galactosylceramidase.

Galactocerebroside is a marker for oligodendrocytes in the brain, whether or not they form myelin.[1][2]
