Galactocerebrosides are abundant sphingolipids of themyelin membrane of the central nervous system and peripheralnervous system and are also present in small amounts in kidney. Thekey enzymatic step in the biosynthesis of galactocerebrosidesconsists of the transfer of galactose to ceramide catalyzed byUDP-galactose ceramide galactosyltransferase (CGT, EC enzyme encoded by the CGT gene is the first involved in complexlipid biosynthesis in the myelinating oligodendrocyte.[supplied byOMIM].
