recognizes Galactocerebroside (GalC), sulfatide, psychosine and other galactolipids. Cross-reacts with the sulfatide ester of GalC, but to a 16-fold lesser extent. No cross-reactivity with sphingosine, ceramide, mixed ganglioside or glucocerebroside. Binds specifically with oligodendrocytes and Schwann cellsGalC is a very useful, specific marker for oligodendroglial lineage
