The properties of ceramide galactosyltransferase associated with myelin and microsomal fractions of rat brain were studied. The enzyme from both the fractions had similar properties during development and synthesized the same molecular species of the product cerebroside. The results suggested that during myelination the turnover rate of enzyme protein is altered instead of regulatory modulation of the enzyme protein.
