Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Enables ceramide glucosyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including cornified envelope assembly; establishment of skin barrier; and glucosylceramide biosynthetic process. Predicted to be located in Golgi membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Predicted to be active in membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including blastocyst; brain; early embryo; liver; and oocyte. Orthologous to human UGCG (UDP-glucose ceramide glucosyltransferase).
