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.
Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus membrane.
