Summary
This gene encodes two distinct enzyme isoforms, a long membrane-bound form and a short soluble form. These alternate isoforms are thought to be produced through alternative nested transcription initiation and different in-frame start codon usage. These enzymes catalyze the transfer of galactose to acceptor sugars, such as N-acetylglucosamine and glucose. The long form of this enzyme is localized to the trans-Golgi membrane and is involved in glycoconjugate biosynthesis. The short form functions in lactose biosynthesis though formation of a heterodimer with alpha-lactalbumin. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2012]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
