This gene is one of seven beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase(beta4GalT) genes. They encode type II membrane-bound glycoproteinsthat appear to have exclusive specificity for the donor substrateUDP-galactose; all transfer galactose in a beta1,4 linkage tosimilar acceptor sugars: GlcNAc, Glc, and Xyl. Each beta4GalT has adistinct function in the biosynthesis of different glycoconjugatesand saccharide structures. As type II membrane proteins, they havean N-terminal hydrophobic signal sequence that directs the proteinto the Golgi apparatus and which then remains uncleaved to functionas a transmembrane anchor. By sequence similarity, the beta4GalTsform four groups: beta4GalT1 and beta4GalT2, beta4GalT3 andbeta4GalT4, beta4GalT5 and beta4GalT6, and beta4GalT7. The enzymeencoded by this gene appears to mainly play a role in glycolipidbiosynthesis. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants havebeen found for this gene.
