STRINGSTRING
GALC protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"GALC" - Galactocerebrosidase in Homo sapiens
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

GALCGalactocerebrosidase; Hydrolyzes the galactose ester bonds of galactosylceramide, galactosylsphingosine, lactosylceramide, and monogalactosyldiglyceride. Enzyme with very low activity responsible for the lysosomal catabolism of galactosylceramide, a major lipid in myelin, kidney and epithelial cells of small intestine and colon; Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 59 family (685 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
ARSA
Arylsulfatase A; Hydrolyzes cerebroside sulfate; Belongs to the sulfatase family (509 aa)
         
  0.965
GLA
Galactosidase alpha; Belongs to the glycosyl hydrolase 27 family (429 aa)
     
 
  0.956
GAL3ST1
Galactosylceramide sulfotransferase; Catalyzes the sulfation of membrane glycolipids. Seems to prefer beta-glycosides at the non-reducing termini of sugar chains attached to a lipid moiety. Catalyzes the synthesis of galactosylceramide sulfate (sulfatide), a major lipid component of the myelin sheath and of monogalactosylalkylacylglycerol sulfate (seminolipid), present in spermatocytes (By similarity). Also acts on lactosylceramide, galactosyl 1-alkyl-2-sn-glycerol and galactosyl diacylglycerol (in vitro); Belongs to the galactose-3-O-sulfotransferase family (423 aa)
     
 
  0.955
SMPD1
Sphingomyelin phosphodiesterase; Converts sphingomyelin to ceramide. Also has phospholipase C activities toward 1,2-diacylglycerolphosphocholine and 1,2-diacylglycerolphosphoglycerol (631 aa)
         
  0.955
ASAH1
Acid ceramidase; Hydrolyzes the sphingolipid ceramide into sphingosine and free fatty acid (411 aa)
     
 
  0.951
SGMS1
Phosphatidylcholine-ceramide cholinephosphotransferase 1; Sphingomyelin synthases synthesize the sphingolipid, sphingomyelin, through transfer of the phosphatidyl head group, phosphatidylcholine, on to the primary hydroxyl of ceramide. The reaction is bidirectional depending on the respective levels of the sphingolipid and ceramide. Golgi apparatus SMS1 directly and specifically recognizes the choline head group on the substrate, requiring two fatty chains on the choline-P donor molecule in order to be recognized efficiently as a substrate. Major form in macrophages. Required for cell [...] (413 aa)
         
  0.951
GBA
Glucosylceramidase beta (536 aa)
         
  0.949
DEGS2
Sphingolipid delta(4)-desaturase/C4-monooxygenase DES2; Bifunctional enzyme which acts as both a sphingolipid delta(4)-desaturase and a sphingolipid C4-monooxygenase; Fatty acid desaturases (323 aa)
         
  0.946
UGCG
Ceramide glucosyltransferase; Catalyzes the first glycosylation step in glycosphingolipid biosynthesis, the transfer of glucose to ceramide. May also serve as a "flippase"; Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family (394 aa)
         
  0.938
SGMS2
Phosphatidylcholine-ceramide cholinephosphotransferase 2; Sphingomyelin synthases synthesize the sphingolipid, sphingomyelin, through transfer of the phosphatidyl head group, phosphatidylcholine, on to the primary hydroxyl of ceramide. The reaction is bidirectional depending on the respective levels of the sphingolipid and ceramide. Plasma membrane SMS2 can also convert phosphatidylethanolamine (PE) to ceramide phosphatidylethanolamine (CPE). Major form in liver. Required for cell growth in certain cell types. Regulator of cell surface levels of ceramide, an important mediator of signa [...] (365 aa)
