Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have sialyltransferase activity. Involved in cellular response to heat and positive regulation of cell population proliferation. Predicted to localize to the Golgi apparatus and integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ST8SIA1 (ST8 alpha-N-acetyl-neuraminide alpha-2,8-sialyltransferase 1).
