  • trans Golgi
  • type II transmembrane glycoprotein
  • basic FUNCTION
  • synthesis of N acetylactosamine in glycolipids and glycoproteins
  • one of the enzymes transferring galactose to the terminal N-acetylglucosamine of complex-type N-glycans and its expression is significantly altered during oncogenesis
  • play important roles in the extension of N- and O-linked glycans involved in several biological events
  • major regulator of the synthesis of glycans involved in neuronal development
  • specific enzyme complex of B4GALT2 with B3GAT1 plays an important role in the biosynthesis of B3GAT1 carbohydrate
