  IntEnz view ENZYME view

IntEnz Enzyme Nomenclature


Accepted name:
dermatan 4-sulfotransferase
Other names:
dermatan-specific N-acetylgalactosamine 4-O-sulfotransferase
dermatan-4-sulfotransferase 1
dermatan N-acetylgalactosamine 4-O-sulfotransferase
CHST14 protein
Systematic name:
3'-phospho-5'-adenylyl sulfate:[dermatan]-N-acetylgalactosamine 4-sulfotransferase



The sulfation takes place at the 4-position of N-acetylgalactosamine residues of dermatan. D4ST-1 shows a strong preference in vitro for sulfate transfer to IdoUAα(1,3)GalNAcβ(1,4) that is flanked by GlcUAβ(1,3)GalNAcβ(1,4) as compared with IdoUAα(1,3)GalNAcβ(1,4) flanked by IdoUAα(1,3)GalNAcβ(1,4) [1].
