Xylosyltransferase (IPR024448)

Short name: XylT

Family relationships



This entry represents a family of metazoan xylosyltransferases, which includes xylosyltransferase 1 and xylosyltransferase 2. These enzymes initiate the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycan chains in proteoglycans by transferring xylose from UDP-xylose to specific serine residues of the core protein [PMID: 11099377].
