    FAMILY
  • glycosyltransferase 8 family (GT8 family)
  • CATEGORY enzyme
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION     plasma membrane
    text single-pass type II membrane protein
    basic FUNCTION
  • elongates the O-linked glucose attached to EGF-like repeats in the extracellular domain of Notch proteins by catalyzing the addition of xylose
  • GXYLT1 and GXYLT2 (glucoside-xylosyltransferase 1/2), are able to transfer the first alpha1,3-linked xylose to O-glucosylated mammalian Notch EGF repeats
