Summaries for NDST4 Gene

GeneCards Summary for NDST4 Gene

NDST4 (N-Deacetylase/N-Sulfotransferase 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and heparan sulfate biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include hydrolase activity and deacetylase activity. An important paralog of this gene is HS3ST5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NDST4 Gene

  • Essential bifunctional enzyme that catalyzes both the N-deacetylation and the N-sulfation of glucosamine (GlcNAc) of the glycosaminoglycan in heparan sulfate. Modifies the GlcNAc-GlcA disaccharide repeating sugar backbone to make N-sulfated heparosan, a prerequisite substrate for later modifications in heparin biosynthesis. Has low deacetylase activity but high sulfotransferase activity (By similarity).
