Target

  • FunctionProbably catalyzes the initial reaction in O-linked oligosaccharide biosynthesis, the transfer of an N-acetyl-D-galactosamine residue to a serine or threonine residue on the protein receptor.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Expressed in heart, skeletal muscle, kidney, liver, small intestine and placenta. Weakly expressed in colon, thymus, spleen, lung and leukocyte.
  • PathwayProtein modification; protein glycosylation.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family. GalNAc-T subfamily.
    Contains 1 ricin B-type lectin domain.
  • DomainThere are two conserved domains in the glycosyltransferase region: the N-terminal domain (domain A, also called GT1 motif), which is probably involved in manganese coordination and substrate binding and the C-terminal domain (domain B, also called Gal/GalNAc-T motif), which is probably involved in catalytic reaction and UDP-Gal binding.
    The ricin B-type lectin domain binds to GalNAc and contributes to the glycopeptide specificity.
