Gene: Galnt2 (polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Galnt2
Name: polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2
Description: Predicted to have manganese ion binding activity and polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in immunoglobulin biosynthetic process and protein O-linked glycosylation. Predicted to localize to Golgi stack and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain ventricular layer; floor plate; lens; and lung mesenchyme. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital disorder of glycosylation type II. Orthologous to human GALNT2 (polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2); PARTICIPATES IN O-linked glycan biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
