Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Enables UDP-galactose:glucosylceramide beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase activity. Involved in ganglioside biosynthetic process via lactosylceramide and neurogenesis. Predicted to be located in membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Predicted to be active in Golgi apparatus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; limb; nervous system; sensory organ; and urinary system. Orthologous to human B4GALT6 (beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 6).
