Summaries for GALNT7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GALNT7 Gene

  • This gene encodes GalNAc transferase 7, a member of the GalNAc-transferase family. The enzyme encoded by this gene controls the initiation step of mucin-type O-linked protein glycosylation and transfer of N-acetylgalactosamine to serine and threonine amino acid residues. This enzyme is a type II transmembrane protein and shares common sequence motifs with other family members. Unlike other family members, this enzyme shows exclusive specificity for partially GalNAc-glycosylated acceptor substrates and shows no activity with non-glycosylated peptides. This protein may function as a follow-up enzyme in the initiation step of O-glycosylation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for GALNT7 Gene

GALNT7 (Polypeptide N-Acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Mucin type O-Glycan biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include carbohydrate binding and polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GALNT4.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GALNT7 Gene

  • Glycopeptide transferase involved in O-linked oligosaccharide biosynthesis, which catalyzes the transfer of an N-acetyl-D-galactosamine residue to an already glycosylated peptide. In contrast to other proteins of the family, it does not act as a peptide transferase that transfers GalNAc onto serine or threonine residue on the protein receptor, but instead requires the prior addition of a GalNAc on a peptide before adding additional GalNAc moieties. Some peptide transferase activity is however not excluded, considering that its appropriate peptide substrate may remain unidentified.

Q86SF2

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

GALT7_HUMAN :
  • There are two conserved domains in the glycosyltransferase region: the N-terminal domain (domain A, also called GT1 motif), which is probably involved in manganese coordination and substrate binding and the C-terminal domain (domain B, also called Gal/GalNAc-T motif), which is probably involved in catalytic reaction and UDP-Gal binding.
  • Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family. GalNAc-T subfamily.
Domain:
  • There are two conserved domains in the glycosyltransferase region: the N-terminal domain (domain A, also called GT1 motif), which is probably involved in manganese coordination and substrate binding and the C-terminal domain (domain B, also called Gal/GalNAc-T motif), which is probably involved in catalytic reaction and UDP-Gal binding.
  • The ricin B-type lectin domain binds to GalNAc and contributes to the glycopeptide specificity.
  • Contains 1 ricin B-type lectin domain.
Family:
  • Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family. GalNAc-T subfamily.
