Summaries for GCNT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GCNT1 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the beta-1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase gene family. It is essential to the formation of Gal beta 1-3(GlcNAc beta 1-6)GalNAc structures and the core 2 O-glycan branch. The gene coding this enzyme was originally mapped to 9q21, but was later localized to 9q13. Multiple alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein, have been identified.

GeneCards Summary for GCNT1 Gene

GCNT1 (Glucosaminyl (N-Acetyl) Transferase 1, Core 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity and beta-1,3-galactosyl-O-glycosyl-glycoprotein beta-1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is XYLT2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GCNT1 Gene

  • Glycosyltransferase that catalyzes the transfer of an N-acetylglucosamine moiety onto mucin-type core 1 O-glycan to form the branched mucin-type core 2 O-glycan. Mucin-type core 2 O-glycans play an important role in leukocyte extravasation as they serve as scaffolds for the display of the selectin ligand sialyl Lewis X by leukocytes.
