Gene: Ugt8a (UDP galactosyltransferase 8A) Mus musculus
Analyze
Symbol: Ugt8a
Name: UDP galactosyltransferase 8A
Description: Predicted to have UDP-galactose:glucosylceramide beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase activity. Involved in cytoskeleton organization; nervous system development; and protein localization to paranode region of axon. Predicted to localize to the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Is expressed in brain. Orthologous to human UGT8 (UDP glycosyltransferase 8); PARTICIPATES IN Fabry disease pathway; Gaucher's disease pathway; Krabbe disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; benzo[a]pyrene; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 2-hydroxyacylsphingosine 1-beta-galactosyltransferase; AI850488; AW455908; ceramide UDP-galactosyltransferase; cerebroside synthase; Cgt; mCerGT; UDP-galactose-ceramide galactosyltransferase 8A; UDP-glucuronosyltransferase 8; Ugt8
