|Other Names||Xylosyltransferase 1, Peptide O-xylosyltransferase 1, Xylosyltransferase I, XT-I, XylT-I, XYLT1, XT1|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Catalyzes the first step in biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycan. Transfers D-xylose from UDP-D-xylose to specific serine residues of the core protein. Initial enzyme in the biosynthesis of chondroitin sulfate and dermatan sulfate proteoglycans in fibroblasts and chondrocytes.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein Golgi apparatus membrane; Single- pass type II membrane protein. Secreted. Note=Some fraction is also found in the extracellular space together with chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans, suggesting that it can be secreted|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Expressed at higher level in placenta, kidney and pancreas. Weakly expressed in skeletal muscle.|

This locus encodes a xylosyltransferase enzyme. Theencoded protein catalyzes transfer of UDP-xylose to serine residuesof an acceptor protein substrate. This transfer reaction isnecessary for biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycan chains. Mutationsin this gene have been associated with increased severity ofpseudoxanthoma elasticum.
