|Other Names||Beta-galactoside alpha-2, 6-sialyltransferase 2, Alpha 2, 6-ST 2, CMP-N-acetylneuraminate-beta-galactosamide-alpha-2, 6-sialyltransferase 2, ST6Gal II, ST6GalII, hST6Gal II, Sialyltransferase 2, ST6GAL2, KIAA1877, SIAT2|
|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||Transfers sialic acid from the donor of substrate CMP- sialic acid to galactose containing acceptor substrates. Has alpha-2,6-sialyltransferase activity toward oligosaccharides that have the Gal-beta-1,4-GlcNAc sequence at the non-reducing end of their carbohydrate groups, but it has weak or no activities toward glycoproteins and glycolipids.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Weakly expressed in some tissues, such as small intestine, colon and fetal brain|
