Background

May serve as a flippase as well as a glucosyltransferase that transfers glucose to ceramide. It Catalzes; UDP-glucose + N-acylsphingosine = UDP + D-glucosyl-N-acylsphingosine. Ceramide Glycosyltransferase is the first step in the Glycosphingolipid synthesis; first glycosylation step. Glucosylceramide synthase (GlcT) and lactosylceramide synthase (GalT) are key enzymes for the synthesis of major glycosphingolipids of vertebrates.

Immunogen

Synthetic peptide derived from human ceramide glycosyltransferase protein.

Positive Control

Found in all tissues examined.

Formulation

Provided as solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide

Customer Storage

Product should be stored at -20ºC. Aliquot to avoid freeze/thaw cycles
