May serve as a "flippase" as well as a glucosyltransferase that transfers glucose to ceramide. It Catalzes; UDP-glucose + Nacylsphingosine = 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.
