Chondroitin N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase (IPR008428)

Short name: Chond_GalNAc

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family represents Chondroitin N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase. Proteins have a type II transmembrane topology. The enzyme is involved in the biosynthetic initiation and elongation of chondroitin sulphate and is the key enzyme responsible for the selective chain assembly of chondroitin/dermatan sulphate on the linkage region tetrasaccharide common to various proteoglycans containing chondroitin/dermatan sulphate or heparin/heparan sulphate chains [PMID: 11788602, PMID: 11514575].
