Gene: B4galt6 (UDP-Gal:betaGlcNAc beta 1,4-galactosyltransferase, polypeptide 6) Mus musculus
Symbol: B4galt6
Name: UDP-Gal:betaGlcNAc beta 1,4-galactosyltransferase, polypeptide 6
CRRD ID: 737377
Description: Exhibits UDP-galactose:glucosylceramide beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase activity. Involved in ganglioside biosynthetic process via lactosylceramide and neurogenesis. Predicted to localize to Golgi apparatus and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; limb; nervous system; sensory organ; and urinary system. Orthologous to human B4GALT6 (beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 6); PARTICIPATES IN Fabry disease pathway; Gaucher's disease pathway; Krabbe disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
