Secondary Accession Numbers None
Name Alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminide alpha-2,6-sialyltransferase 3
  1. GalNAc alpha-2,6-sialyltransferase III
  2. ST6GalNAc III
  3. STY
  4. Sialyltransferase 7C
  5. ST6GalNAcIII
  6. SIAT7-C
Gene Name ST6GALNAC3
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Not Available
Specific Function Involved in the biosynthesis of ganglioside GD1A from GM1B. Transfers CMP-NeuAc with an alpha-2,6-linkage to GalNAc residue on NeuAc-alpha-2,3-Gal-beta-1,3-GalNAc of glycoproteins and glycolipids. ST6GalNAcIII prefers glycolipids to glycoproteins (By similarity).
  • Glycosphingolipid biosynthesis - ganglio series
  • protein glycosylation
