Glycosphingolipids (GSLs) are a group of membranecomponents that contain lipid and sugar moieties. They are presentin essentially all animal cells and are believed to have importantroles in various cellular processes. UDP-glucose ceramideglucosyltransferase catalyzes the first glycosylation step inglycosphingolipid biosynthesis. The product, glucosylceramide, isthe core structure of more than 300 GSLs. UGCG is widely expressedand transcription is upregulated during keratinocytedifferentiation.
