B3GALNT2 beta-1,3-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2

Gene ID: 148789, updated on 26-Jul-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: MDDGA11; B3GalNAc-T2

Summary

This gene encodes a member of the glycosyltransferase 31 family. The encoded protein synthesizes GalNAc:beta-1,3GlcNAc, a novel carbohydrate structure, on N- and O-glycans. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2013]
