GeneCards Summary for B3GNT8 Gene
B3GNT8 (UDP-GlcNAc:BetaGal Beta-1,3-N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include galactosyltransferase activity and protein N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is B3GNT5.
