Chst5

Official Full Name
carbohydrate (N-acetylglucosamine 6-O) sulfotransferase 5
Background
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the Gal/GalNAc/GlcNAc 6-O-sulfotransferase (GST) family, members of which;catalyze the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of galactose (Gal), N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc), or;N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) residues within proteoglycans, and sulfation of O-linked sugars of mucin-type acceptors.Carbohydrate sulfation plays a critical role in many biologic processes. This gene is predominantly expressed in colon;and small intestine.
