GALNT12 polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 12

Gene ID: 79695, updated on 17-Jun-2024
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: CRCS1; GalNAc-T12


This gene encodes a member of a family of UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferases, which catalyze the transfer of N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) from UDP-GalNAc to a serine or threonine residue on a polypeptide acceptor in the initial step of O-linked protein glycosylation. Mutations in this gene are associated with an increased susceptibility to colorectal cancer.[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]
