Protein Information
Name ST8SIA4
Synonyms PST, PST1, SIAT8D
Function Catalyzes the polycondensation of alpha-2,8-linked sialic acid required for the synthesis of polysialic acid (PSA), which is present on the embryonic neural cell adhesion molecule (N-CAM), necessary for plasticity of neural cells.
Cellular Location Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein
Tissue Location Highly expressed in fetal brain, lung and kidney and in adult heart, spleen and thymus. Present to a lesser extent in adult brain, placenta, lung, large and small intestine and peripheral blood leukocytes

The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the polycondensation of alpha-2,8-linked sialic acid required for the synthesis of polysialic acid, a modulator of the adhesive properties of neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM1). The encoded protein, which is a member of glycosyltransferase family 29, is a type II membrane protein that may be present in the Golgi apparatus.
