IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature
EC 2.8.2.17

Names

Accepted name:
chondroitin 6-sulfotransferase
Other names:
3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate (PAPS):chondroitin sulfate sulfotransferase
chondroitin 6-O-sulfotransferase
terminal 6-sulfotransferase
Systematic name:
3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:chondroitin 6'-sulfotransferase

Reaction

Comments:

The sulfation is at the 6-position of N-acetylgalactosamine residues of chondroitin. Not identical with EC 2.8.2.5 chondroitin 4-sulfotransferase.
