Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits deacetylase activity and sulfotransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of signal transduction; and protein sulfation. Predicted to localize to Golgi apparatus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; future brain; integumental system; nervous system; and respiratory system. Used to study DiGeorge syndrome; congenital diaphragmatic hernia; and newborn respiratory distress syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive non-syndromic intellectual disability. Orthologous to human NDST1 (N-deacetylase and N-sulfotransferase 1).
