|Other Names||Chondroitin sulfate N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 1, CsGalNAcT-1, Chondroitin beta-1, 4-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 1, Beta4GalNAcT-1, CSGALNACT1, CHGN, GALNACT1|
|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 1,4-N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) from UDP- GalNAc to the non-reducing end of glucuronic acid (GlcUA). Required for addition of the first GalNAc to the core tetrasaccharide linker and for elongation of chondroitin chains. Important role in chondroitin chain biosynthesis in cartilage formation and subsequent endochondral ossification (PubMed:11788602, PubMed:12163485, PubMed:12446672, PubMed:17145758). Moreover, is involved in the metabolism of aggrecan (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous, with the highest levels in placenta, thyroid, bladder, prostate and adrenal gland. Detected at low levels in the other tissues examined|
