ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
N-acylsphingosine galactosyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
2-hydroxyacylsphingosine 1-beta-galactosyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-alpha-D-galactose + N-acylsphingosine <=> UDP + beta-D-galactosylceramide
  • This membrane-bound, endoplasmic reticulum-located enzyme catalyzes the last step in the synthesis of galactocerebrosides, which are abundant sphingolipids of the myelin membrane of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system.
  • It has a strong preference for ceramides that contain hydroxylated fatty acids.
  • Formerly EC
