They are subdivided into Neutral Glycosphingolipids comprising monoglycosyl- and oligoglycosylsphingoids and monoglycosyl- and oligoglycosylCeramides; and Acidic Glycosphingolipids which comprises sialosylglycosylsphingoLipids (Gangliosides); Sulfoglycosphingolipids (formerly known as Sulfatides), glycuronoglycosphingoLipids, and phospho- and phosphonoglycosphingoLipids.
