Gene: Abo (ABO, alpha 1-3-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase and alpha 1-3-galactosyltransferase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Abo
Name: ABO, alpha 1-3-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase and alpha 1-3-galactosyltransferase
CRRD ID: 2307241
Description: Exhibits alpha-1,3-galactosyltransferase activity and glycoprotein-fucosylgalactoside alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular oligosaccharide metabolic process; response to nematode; and response to retinoic acid. Localizes to Golgi apparatus and cytoplasmic vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Coronavirus infectious disease; echinococcosis; gallbladder carcinoma; leukemia (multiple); and pulmonary sarcoidosis. Orthologous to human ABO (ABO, alpha 1-3-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase and alpha 1-3-galactosyltransferase); PARTICIPATES IN lacto-series glycosphingolipid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; acrylamide; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
