Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits beta-N-acetylglucosaminylglycopeptide beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase activity and cytoskeletal protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including lactose biosynthetic process; single fertilization; and tube morphogenesis. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus; cell surface; and plasma membrane. Used to study IgA glomerulonephritis and endocrine system disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital disorder of glycosylation and congenital disorder of glycosylation type IId. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system; liver; and nervous system. Orthologous to human B4GALT1 (beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 1).
