SLC35A2 encodes a UDP-galactose transporter that is localized in the Golgi membrane. It is also known as UGT1. The encoded protein has multiple membrane-spanning regions. UDP-galactose is transported into the Golgi lumen and used as a glycosyl donor for glycan synthesis. It also transports UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine in addition to UDP-galactose. Mutation of SLC35A2 is associated with congenital disorder of glycosylation type 2M.
