ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.179

Accepted Name
Lactosylceramide beta-1,3-galactosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-alpha-D-galactose + D-galactosyl-(1->4)-beta-D-glucosyl-R <=> UDP + D-galactosyl-(1->3)-beta-D-galactosyl-(1->4)-beta-D-glucosyl-R
Comment(s)
  • R may be an oligosaccharide or a glycolipid.
  • Lactose can also act as acceptor, more slowly.
  • Involved in the elongation of oligosaccharide chains, especially in glycolipids.
