Gene: UGT8 (UDP glycosyltransferase 8) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: UGT8
Name: UDP glycosyltransferase 8
Description: Predicted to have UDP-glycosyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in central nervous system development; glycosphingolipid metabolic process; and peripheral nervous system development. Predicted to localize to the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 2-hydroxyacylsphingosine 1-beta-galactosyltransferase; ceramide UDP-galactosyltransferase; cerebroside synthase; CGT; UDP-galactose ceramide galactosyltransferase; UDP-galactose-ceramide galactosyltransferase; UGT4; uridine diphosphate glycosyltransferase 8
