Accepted name: glycosaminoglycan galactosyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-α-D-galactose + glycosaminoglycan = UDP + D-galactosylglycosaminoglycan
Other name(s): uridine diphosphogalactose-mucopolysaccharide galactosyltransferase; UDP-galactose:glycosaminoglycan D-galactosyltransferase
Systematic name: UDP-α-D-galactose:glycosaminoglycan D-galactosyltransferase
Comments: Involved in the biosynthesis of galactose-containing glycosaminoglycan of the ameboid protozoan Dictyostelium discoideum.
