GeneCards Summary for GALNT5 Gene
GALNT5 (Polypeptide N-Acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GALNT5 include hereditary multiple exostoses and exostosis. Among its related pathways are Metabolism 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 polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GALNT4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GALNT5 Gene
Catalyzes the initial reaction in O-linked oligosaccharide biosynthesis, the transfer of an N-acetyl-D-galactosamine residue to a serine or threonine residue on the protein receptor. Has activity toward EA2 peptide substrate, but has a weak activity toward Muc2 or Muc1b substrates (By similarity).
