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
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 the Golgi apparatus and cytoplasmic vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including echinococcosis; gallbladder carcinoma; hemolytic anemia; 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
Also known as: a transferase; ABO blood group (alpha 1-3-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase, alpha 1-3-galactosyltransferase); ABO blood group (transferase A, alpha 1-3-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; ABO blood group (transferase A, alpha 1-3-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase, transferase B, alpha 1-3-galactosyltransferase); Abo2; b blood group galactosyltransferase; b transferase; blood group A glycosyltransferase 2; cis-AB transferase 2; fucosylglycoprotein 3-alpha-galactosyltransferase; fucosylglycoprotein alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; glycoprotein-fucosylgalactoside alpha-galactosyltransferase; glycoprotein-fucosylgalactoside alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; histo-blood group A transferase; histo-blood group ABO system transferase 2; histo-blood group B transferase; LOC296504; NAGAT 2; putative blood group A transferase T2; transferase B, alpha 1-3-galactosyltransferase)
