|Other Names||Polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2, Polypeptide GalNAc transferase 2, GalNAc-T2, pp-GaNTase 2, Protein-UDP acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2, UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2, Polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2 soluble form, GALNT2|
|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 initial reaction in O-linked oligosaccharide biosynthesis, the transfer of an N-acetyl-D- galactosamine residue to a serine or threonine residue on the protein receptor. Has a broad spectrum of substrates for peptides such as EA2, Muc5AC, Muc1a, Muc1b. Probably involved in O-linked glycosylation of the immunoglobulin A1 (IgA1) hinge region.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus, Golgi stack membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein. Secreted. Note=Resides preferentially in the trans and medial parts of the Golgi stack. A secreted form also exists|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed.|

GALNT2 encodes polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2, a member of the GalNAc-transferases family. This family transfers an N-acetyl galactosamine to the hydroxyl group of a serine or threonine residue in the first step of O-linked oligosaccharide biosynthesis. Individual GalNAc-transferases have distinct activities and initiation of O-glycosylation in a cell is regulated by a repertoire of GalNAc-transferases.
