The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 58 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 58 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionCatalyzes the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of non-reducing N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues within keratan-like structures on N-linked glycans and within mucin-associated glycans that can ultimately serve as L-selectin ligands. L-selectin ligands are present in high endothelial cells (HEVs) and play a central role in lymphocyte homing at sites of inflammation. Participates in biosynthesis of L-selectin ligand sialyl 6-sulfo Lewis X and in lymphocyte homing to Peyer patches. Has no activity toward O-linked sugars. Its substrate specificity may be influenced by its subcellular location. Sulfates GlcNAc residues at terminal, non-reducing ends of oligosaccharide chains.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Highly expressed in bone marrow, peripheral blood leukocytes, spleen, brain, spinal cord, ovary and placenta. Expressed by high endothelial cells (HEVs) and leukocytes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the sulfotransferase 1 family. Gal/GlcNAc/GalNAc subfamily.
