Description
Description

Core 1 3-beta-galactosyltransferases elongate O-linked N-acetylgalactosamine (O-GalNAc) by adding galactose in a β1,3 linkage, thereby building the 'T-antigen' or 'core-1' structure. In contrast to mammals, D. melanogaster has several such enzymes, each expressed in distinct patterns. (Adapted from FBrf0207265.)

Notes on Group

CG2983 shares a high degree of overall sequence similarity with the other putative core 1 GalTs, but appears to lack critical amino acids within the most highly conserved sequence motifs (FBrf0207265).
