Sialic acid is a key determinate of oligosaccharidestructures involved in cell-cell communication, cell-substrateinteraction, adhesion, and protein targeting. ST8SIA6 belongs to afamily of sialyltransferases (EC 126.96.36.199) that synthesizesialylglycoconjugates (Takashima et al., 2002 [PubMed11980897]).
