ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.99.6

Accepted Name
N-acetyllactosaminide alpha-2,3-sialyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Neolactotetraosylceramide alpha-2,3-sialyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
CMP-N-acetyl-beta-neuraminate + beta-D-galactosyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl-R <=> CMP + N-acetyl-alpha-neuraminyl-(2->3)-beta-D-galactosyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl-beta-D-glucosaminyl-R
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme recognizes the sequence beta-D-galactosyl-(1->4)-N-acetyl- D-glucosaminyl (known as type 2 histo-blood group precursor disaccharide) in non-reducing termini of glycan moieties in glycoproteins and glycolipids.
  • The enzyme from chicken brain was shown to act on neolactotetraosylceramide, producing ganglioside LM1.
  • Formerly EC 2.4.99.10.
