Gene: B4GALNT1 (beta-1,4-N-acetyl-galactosaminyltransferase 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: B4GALNT1
Name: beta-1,4-N-acetyl-galactosaminyltransferase 1
Description: Exhibits (N-acetylneuraminyl)-galactosylglucosylceramide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. Involved in ganglioside biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to Golgi membrane. Implicated in hereditary spastic paraplegia 26.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
