Gene: B4GALT5 (beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 5) Homo sapiens
Symbol: B4GALT5
Name: beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 5
Description: Exhibits UDP-galactose:glucosylceramide beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including ganglioside biosynthetic process via lactosylceramide; neurogenesis; and regulation of protein stability. Predicted to localize to the Golgi membrane. Biomarker of multiple sclerosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
