Description
Description

Solute carrier family 35 (SLC35) members transport nucleotide sugars and adenosine 3'-phospho 5'-phosphosulfate from the cytosol to the endoplasmic reticulum and the Golgi apparatus. These sugars serve as substrates for the glycosylation and sulfation of proteins, lipids and proteoglycans. (Adapted from FBrf0221674, FBrf0193270 and PMID:23506892).
