UDP-Gal:betaGlcNAc beta 1,4- galactosyltransferase, polypeptide 1

GalT, N-Acetyllactosamine Synthase, beta 1,4-galactosyltransferase
The protein encoded by this gene is a beta-1,3-glucosyltransferase that transfers glucose to O-linked fucosylglycans on thrombospondin type-1 repeats (TSRs) of several proteins. The encoded protein is a type II membrane protein. Defects in this gene are a cause of Peters-plus syndrome (PPS).[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009] (from NCBI)

Guo et al., Shanghai, China. In Lett Appl Microbiol, Dec 2015
The results suggested that nox, pfk, rfbB and galT genes were the largest contributors to EPS biosynthesis in this study, which elevated EPS yield by 46·0, 20, 17·4 and 19·6% respectively.

Imaging the Intracellular Trafficking of APP with Photoactivatable GFP.
Pasternak et al., Kenya. In J Vis Exp, 2014
By using the Golgi marker Galactosyl transferase coupled to Cyan Fluorescent Protein (GalT-CFP) as a target, we are able to accurately photoactivate APP in the trans-Golgi network.
The sweets standing at the borderline between allo- and xenotransplantation.
Kim et al., Seoul, South Korea. In Xenotransplantation, 2013
Although researchers have been able to develop α1,3-galactosyltransferase (GalT) gene knockout (KO) pigs, there remain unclarified non-Gal antigens that prevent xenotransplantation.
Two Tunisian patients with Peters plus syndrome harbouring a novel splice site mutation in the B3GALTL gene that modulates the mRNA secondary structure.

A novel homozygous c.597-2A>G mutation was identified in both patients with Peters plus syndrome harbouring a novel splice site mutation in the B3GALTL gene
Altered oligosaccharide structures reduce colitis induction in mice defective in β-1,4-galactosyltransferase.

[Regulation of human β-1,4-galactosyltransferase V gene expression in cancer cells].
Furukawa et al., Nagaoka, Japan. In Yakugaku Zasshi, 2011
β-1,4-Galactosyltransferase (β-1,4-GalT) V - whose human and mouse genes were cloned by us - has been suggested to be involved in the biosyntheses of N-glycans, O-glycans, and lactosylceramide by in vitro studies.

Gal/non-Gal antigens in pig tissues and human non-Gal antibodies in the GalT-KO era.
Breimer, Göteborg, Sweden. In Xenotransplantation, 2011
Our knowledge regarding Gal and non-Gal antigens in GalT-KO pig tissues can be summarized as α3Galactosyl-tranferase gene knock out eliminates the Galα3Galβ4GlcNAc-R antigen expression in pig tissues as well as anti-Gal antibody binding.

Robson et al., Boston, United States. In Xenotransplantation, 2011
The development of α-1,3-galactosyltransferase gene-knockout (GalT-KO) swine with the removal of a dominant xeno-antigen has been an important advance; however, delayed xenograft and acute vascular reaction in GalT-KO animals persist.

These results demonstrate that the galK gene is translationally coupled to the gene immediately preceding galK in the gal operon (that is, galT), and that the coupling effect depends primarily on the position at which upstream translation terminates relative to the galK start site.
