Summaries for WBSCR17 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for WBSCR17 Gene

  • This gene encodes an N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase. This gene is located centromeric to the common deleted region in Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS), a multisystem developmental disorder caused by the deletion of contiguous genes at 7q11.23. This protein may play a role in membrane trafficking. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2013]

GeneCards Summary for WBSCR17 Gene

WBSCR17 (Williams-Beuren Syndrome Chromosome Region 17) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with WBSCR17 include williams-beuren syndrome. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein 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 polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is GALNT9.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for WBSCR17 Gene

  • May catalyze the initial reaction in O-linked oligosaccharide biosynthesis, the transfer of an N-acetyl-D-galactosamine residue to a serine or threonine residue on the protein receptor.

  • Q6IS24
  • 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.
  • Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 2 family. GalNAc-T subfamily.

  • Note=WBSCR17 is located in the Williams-Beuren syndrome (WBS) critical region. WBS results from a hemizygous deletion of several genes on chromosome 7q11.23, thought to arise as a consequence of unequal crossing over between highly homologous low-copy repeat sequences flanking the deleted region.
