ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Beta-D-galactosyl-(1->3)-N-acetyl-beta-D-galactosaminide alpha-2,3- sialyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Monosialoganglioside sialyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
CMP-N-acetyl-beta-neuraminate + a beta-D-galactosyl-(1->3)-N-acetyl-beta-D-galactosaminyl-R <=> CMP + an N-acetyl-alpha-neuraminyl-(2->3)-beta-D-galactosyl-(1->3)-N-acetyl-beta-D-galactosaminyl-R
  • The enzyme recognizes the sequence beta-D-galactosyl-(1->3)-N-acetyl- D-galactosaminyl (known as type 1 histo-blood group precursor disaccharide) in non-reducing termini of glycan moieties in glycoproteins and glycolipids.
  • When acting on gangloside GM1a, it forms gangloside GD1a.
