Gene: B4galt5 (UDP-Gal:betaGlcNAc beta 1,4-galactosyltransferase, polypeptide 5) Mus musculus
Symbol: B4galt5
Name: UDP-Gal:betaGlcNAc beta 1,4-galactosyltransferase, polypeptide 5
CRRD ID: 1320748
Description: Exhibits N-acetyllactosamine synthase activity and UDP-galactose:glucosylceramide beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular macromolecule biosynthetic process; ganglioside biosynthetic process via lactosylceramide; and neurogenesis. Predicted to localize to Golgi apparatus and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including epithelium; genitourinary system; heart; nervous system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human B4GALT5 (beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 5); PARTICIPATES IN O-linked glycan biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 2-butoxyethanol; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
