The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 3 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 88 kDa.
FunctionGlycosyltransferase which participates in glycosylation of alpha-dystroglycan. May carry out the synthesis of glycoprotein and glycosphingolipid sugar chains. May be involved in the addition of a repeated disaccharide unit.
Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Highest expression in heart, brain and skeletal muscle.
PathwayProtein modification; protein glycosylation.
Involvement in diseaseMuscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital with mental retardation B6 Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital with brain and eye anomalies A6
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyltransferase 8 family.
