Background Information

UGCG, also named as GCS and GLCT-1, belongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family. It catalyzes the first glycosylation step in glycosphingolipid biosynthesis, the transfer of glucose to ceramide. UGCG may also serve as a "flippase". It is up-regulated at the transcriptional level during keratinocyte differentiation. UGCG is a membrane protein. The calculated MW is 45 kDa. In SDS-PAGE, it is about 50-55 kDa.
