Reaction catalysed
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-galactosamine + O-(N-acetyl-alpha-neuraminyl)-(2->3)-O-beta-D-galactopyranosyl-(1->4)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1<->1)-ceramide <=> UDP + O-2-(acetylamino)-2-deoxy-beta-D-galactopyranosyl-(1->4)-O-(N-acetyl-alpha-neuraminyl-(2->3))-O-beta-D-galactopyranosyl-(1->4)-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1<->1)-ceramide
Comment(s)
  • Catalyzes the formation of the gangliosides (i.e. sialic-acid- containing glycosphingolipids) GM2, GD2 and SM2 from GM3, GD3 and SM3, respectively.
  • Asialo-GM3 and lactosylceramide are also substrates, but glycoproteins and oligosaccharides are not substrates.
