Chemical structure of sulfoquinovosyl distearoylglycerol, a type of sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol

Sulfolipids are a class of lipids which possess a sulfur-containing functional group. An abundant sulfolipid is sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol, which is composed of a glycoside of sulfoquinovose and diacylglycerol. In plants, sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerides (SQDG) are important members of the sulfur cycle.[1] Other important sulfolipids include sulfatide and seminolipid, each of which are sulfated glycolipids.
