Summary
This gene encodes a protein from the glycosyltransferase 32 family. The encoded enzyme catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine to alpha-1,4-linked beta-galactose residues. This enzyme is required for type III mucin synthesis and it is largely associated with the Golgi apparatus membrane. The encoded protein appears to be expressed in adenocarcinoma cells of pancreatic, biliary tract and gastric cancers.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
