Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>
-Experimental evidence at protein leveli <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein.

Catalyzes the first glycosylation step in glycosphingolipid biosynthesis, the transfer of glucose to ceramide to produce glucosylceramides (GlcCer). GlcCer are known to contribute to the physical properties and physiological functions of membranes and may regulate signal transduction (PubMed:19240113, PubMed:21325339).

Only branched-chain sphingoid bases like 15-methylhexadecasphing-4-enine are used for generating complex sphingolipids in Caenorhabditis elegans (PubMed:7651085).

Together with cgt-3, plays a role in the trafficking of proteins such as mig-14 to the cell membrane in intestinal cells (PubMed:26115433).

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:iEBC36C0EF42C5831
