UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SULT4A1 Gene
Atypical sulfotransferase family member with very low affinity for 3-phospho-5-adenylyl sulfate (PAPS) and very low catalytic activity towards L-triiodothyronine, thyroxine, estrone, p-nitrophenol, 2-naphthylamine, and 2-beta-naphthol. May have a role in the metabolism of drugs and neurotransmitters in the CNS.
