Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CHST5 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the Gal/GalNAc/GlcNAc 6-O-sulfotransferase (GST) family, members of which catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of galactose (Gal), N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc), or N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues within proteoglycans, and sulfation of O-linked sugars of mucin-type acceptors. Carbohydrate sulfation plays a critical role in many biologic processes. This gene is predominantly expressed in colon and small intestine. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
GeneCards Summary for CHST5 Gene
CHST5 (Carbohydrate Sulfotransferase 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CHST5 include Macular Corneal Dystrophy and Colon Mucinous Adenocarcinoma. Among its related pathways are Glycosaminoglycan metabolism and Keratan sulfate/keratin metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include sulfotransferase activity and N-acetylglucosamine 6-O-sulfotransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is CHST2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CHST5 Gene
Sulfotransferase that utilizes 3-phospho-5-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) as sulfonate donor to catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of non-reducing N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues and O-linked sugars of mucin-type acceptors. Acts on the non-reducing terminal GlcNAc of short carbohydrate substrates. However, it does not transfer sulfate to longer carbohydrate substrates that have poly-N-acetyllactosamine structures. Has no activity toward keratan. Not involved in generating HEV-expressed ligands for SELL. Its substrate specificity may be influenced by its subcellular location.
