N-deacetylase and N-sulfotransferase 1

ENTREZID: 3340 | Type: NA | Map: 5q33.1

OMIM: 300335

Summary Entrez
This gene encodes a member of the heparan sulfate/heparin GlcNAc N-deacetylase/ N-sulfotransferase family. The encoded enzyme is a type II transmembrane protein that resides in the Golgi apparatus. The encoded protein catalyzes the transfer of sulfate from 3’-phosphoadenosine 5’-phosphosulfate to nitrogen of glucosamine in heparan sulfate. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2014]
