GALC is responsible for the lysosomal hydrolysis of certain galactolipids located mainly in myelin, galactosylceramide
and psychosine (galactosylsphingosine).

13-sulfate and identification of their lysocom pounds by delayed extraction matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry.
KineMed aims to develop lipid kinetic biomarkers, including the dynamics of cholesterol, phospholipids and galactosylceramide
in the brain, as well as the synthesis of plasma 24-hydroxy cholesterol.
is galactosylated by a galactosyltransferase (UDP-galactose:ceramide galactosyltransferase) found exclusively in the ER, whereas the UDP-Gal transporter has mainly a Golgi localization.
