Protein

Alpha-1,4-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase

Gene

A4GNT

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Catalyzes the transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to core 2 branched O-glycans (PubMed:10430883). Necessary for the synthesis of type III mucin which is specifically produced in the stomach, duodenum, and pancreatic duct (PubMed:10430883). May protect against inflammation-associated gastric adenocarcinomas (By similarity).By similarity1 Publication

Pathwayi: protein glycosylation
