The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionGlycosaminoglycans biosynthesis. Involved in forming the linkage tetrasaccharide present in heparan sulfate and chondroitin sulfate. Transfers a glucuronic acid moiety from the uridine diphosphate-glucuronic acid (UDP-GlcUA) to the common linkage region trisaccharide Gal-beta-1,3-Gal-beta-1,4-Xyl covalently bound to a Ser residue at the glycosaminylglycan attachment site of proteoglycans. Can also play a role in the biosynthesis of l2/HNK-1 carbohydrate epitope on glycoproteins. Shows strict specificity for Gal-beta-1,3-Gal-beta-1,4-Xyl, exhibiting negligible incorporation into other galactoside substrates including Galbeta1-3Gal beta1-O-benzyl, Galbeta1-4GlcNAc and Galbeta1-4Glc.
Tissue specificityUbiquitous (but weakly expressed in all tissues examined).
PathwayProtein modification; protein glycosylation.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in B3GAT3 are the cause of multiple joint dislocations short stature craniofacial dysmorphism and congenital heart defects (JDSSDHD) [MIM:245600]. An autosomal recessive disease characterized by dysmorphic facies, bilateral dislocations of the elbows, hips, and knees, clubfeet, and short stature, as well as cardiovascular defects.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyltransferase 43 family.
