Protein Information
Name GCNT2
Synonyms GCNT5, II, NACGT1
Function Branching enzyme that converts linear into branched poly-N-acetyllactosaminoglycans. Introduces the blood group I antigen during embryonic development. It is closely associated with the development and maturation of erythroid cells. The expression of the blood group I antigen in erythrocytes is determined by isoform C.
Cellular Location Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein
Tissue Location In the adult, highly expressed in prostate and to a lesser extent in small intestine and colon. Barely detected in heart, brain, kidney and pancreas. No expression in placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, spleen, thymus, testis, ovary and peripheral blood leukocytes. In fetus, highly expressed in brain and to a lesser extent in lung and kidney. Barely detected in liver.

This gene encodes the enzyme responsible for formation ofthe blood group I antigen. The i and I antigens are distinguishedby linear and branched poly-N-acetyllactosaminoglycans,respectively. The encoded protein is the I-branching enzyme, abeta-1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase responsible for theconversion of fetal i antigen to adult I antigen in erythrocytesduring embryonic development. Mutations in this gene have beenassociated with adult i blood group phenotype. Alternativelyspliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have beendescribed.
