Title:
Drosophila alpha-1,4-glycosyltransferase (alpha-4GT1) inhibits reaper-mediated apoptosis in the eye. 
Abstract:
In a genetic screen, alpha-4GT1 has been identified as a potential enhancer of Hairless-mediated cell death in the eye of Drosophila. alpha-4GT1 encodes an alpha-1,4-glycosyltransferase, known to catalyze the fifth step in a series of ceramide glycosylation events. As reported for other enzymes involved in the glycosylation of ceramide, alpha-4GT1 is strongly expressed during oogenesis and is deposited maternally in the egg. Moreover, the protein is enriched at cell membranes. Unexpectedly, over...    »
