Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits alpha-N-acetylneuraminate alpha-2,8-sialyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in ganglioside biosynthetic process; glycoprotein metabolic process; and oligosaccharide metabolic process. Localizes to the early endosome and recycling endosome. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; future brain; genitourinary system; gut; and retina. Orthologous to human ST8SIA2 (ST8 alpha-N-acetyl-neuraminide alpha-2,8-sialyltransferase 2).
