May serve as a "flippase" as well as a glucosyltransferase that transfers glucose to ceramide. It Catalyzes; 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.
Ceramide glucosyltransferase; ectoplacental cone, invasive trophoblast giant cells, extraembryonic ectoderm and chorion sequence 21; GCS; GLCT-1; Glucosylceramide synthase; UDP-glucose ceramide glucosyltransferase; UDP-glucose:ceramide glycosyltransferase; UDP-glucose:N-acylsphingosine D-glucosyltransferase
