ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
[Heparan sulfate]-glucosamine 3-sulfotransferase 1.
Alternative Name(s)
3'-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:heparin-glucosamine 3-O-sulfotransferase.
Glucosaminyl 3-O-sulfotransferase.
Heparan sulfate D-glucosaminyl 3-O-sulfotransferase.
Heparin-glucosamine 3-O-sulfotransferase.
Reaction catalysed
3'-phosphoadenylyl sulfate + [heparan sulfate]-glucosamine <=> adenosine 3',5'-bisphosphate + [heparan sulfate]-glucosamine 3-sulfate
  • This enzyme differs from EC and EC by being the most selective for a precursor of the antithrombin-binding site.
  • It has a minimal acceptor sequence of: -> GlcNAc6S->GlcA-> GlcN2S*+-6S->IdoA2S->GlcN2S->.
  • It can also modify other precursor sequences within heparan sulfate but this action does not create functional antithrombin-binding sites.
  • These precursors are variants of the consensus sequence: -> Glc(N2S>NAc)+-6S->GlcA->GlcN2S*+-6S->GlcA>IdoA+-2S-> Glc(N2S/NAc)+-6S->.
  • If the heparan sulfate substrate lacks 2-O-sulfation of GlcA residues, then enzyme specificity is expanded to modify selected glucosamine residues preceded by IdoA as well as GlcA.
