The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the transfer ofgalactose to lactosylceramide to form globotriaosylceramide, whichhas been identified as the P(k) antigen of the P blood groupsystem. The encoded protein, which is a type II membrane proteinfound in the Golgi, is also required for the synthesis of thebacterial verotoxins receptor.
