Entrez Gene Summary for SULT1A4 Gene

  • Sulfotransferase enzymes catalyze the sulfate conjugation of many hormones, neurotransmitters, drugs, and xenobiotic compounds. These cytosolic enzymes are different in their tissue distributions and substrate specificities. The gene structure (number and length of exons) is similar among family members. This gene encodes a phenol sulfotransferase with thermolabile enzyme activity. Four sulfotransferase genes are located on the p arm of chromosome 16, this gene and SULT1A3 arose from a segmental duplication. Read-through transcription exists between this gene and the upstream SLX1B (SLX1 structure-specific endonuclease subunit homolog B) gene that encodes a protein containing GIY-YIG domains.

GeneCards Summary for SULT1A4 Gene

SULT1A4 (Sulfotransferase Family, Cytosolic, 1A, Phenol-Preferring, Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene. 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 sulfotransferase activity and aryl sulfotransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is SULT1B1.
