Summaries for B3GLCT Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for B3GLCT Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a beta-1,3-glucosyltransferase that transfers glucose to O-linked fucosylglycans on thrombospondin type-1 repeats (TSRs) of several proteins. The encoded protein is a type II membrane protein. Defects in this gene are a cause of Peters-plus syndrome (PPS).[provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for B3GLCT Gene

B3GLCT (Beta 3-Glucosyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with B3GLCT include Peters-Plus Syndrome and Corneal Staphyloma. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Other types of O-glycan biosynthesis. An important paralog of this gene is C1GALT1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for B3GLCT Gene

  • O-glucosyltransferase that transfers glucose toward fucose with a beta-1,3 linkage. Specifically glucosylates O-linked fucosylglycan on TSP type-1 domains of proteins, thereby contributing to elongation of O-fucosylglycan.
