Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
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 active in membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including blastocyst; brain; early embryo; liver; and oocyte. Orthologous to human UGCG (UDP-glucose ceramide glucosyltransferase).
