ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.223

Accepted Name
Glucuronosyl-galactosyl-proteoglycan 4-alpha-N- acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Alpha-1,4-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Alpha-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I.
Glucuronosylgalactosyl-proteoglycan 4-alpha-N- acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Glucuronyl-galactosyl-proteoglycan 4-alpha-N- acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine + [protein]-3-O-(beta-D-GlcA-(1->3)-beta-D-Gal-(1->3)-beta-D-Gal-(1->4)-beta-D-Xyl)-L-serine <=> UDP + [protein]-3-O-(alpha-D-GlcNAc-(1->4)-beta-D-GlcA-(1->3)-beta-D-Gal-(1->3)-beta-D-Gal-(1->4)-beta-D-Xyl)-L-serine
Comment(s)
  • Enzyme involved in the initiation of heparin and heparan sulfate synthesis, transferring GlcNAc to the (GlcA-Gal-Gal-Xyl-)Ser core.
  • Apparently products of both the human EXTL2 and EXTL3 genes can catalyze this reaction.
  • In Caenorhabditis elegans, the product of the rib-2 gene displays this activity as well as that of EC 2.4.1.224.
