ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.38

Accepted Name
Beta-N-acetylglucosaminylglycopeptide beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
GalT.
Glycoprotein 4-beta-galactosyltransferase.
Thyroid galactosyltransferase.
UDP-galactose--glycoprotein galactosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-alpha-D-galactose + N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminylglycopeptide <=> UDP + beta-D-galactosyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminylglycopeptide
Comment(s)
  • Terminal N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl residues in polysaccharides, glycoproteins and glycopeptides can act as acceptor.
  • High activity is shown toward such residues in branched-chain polysaccharides when these are linked by beta-1,6 links to galactose residues; lower activity toward residues linked to galactose by beta- 1,3 links.
  • A component of EC 2.4.1.22.
