Alpha4GnT/A4GNT Gene family

Alpha4GnT/A4GNT Protein

Alpha4GnT/A4GNT protein function

Catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to core 2 branched O-glycans (PubMed:10430883). Necessary for the synthesis of type III mucin which is specifically produced in the stomach, duodenum, and pancreatic duct (PubMed:10430883). May protect against inflammation-associated gastric adenocarcinomas (By similarity).
