Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of epithelial to mesenchymal transition; positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction; and transforming growth factor beta receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to the Golgi apparatus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and cataract 13 with adult i phenotype. Orthologous to human GCNT2 (glucosaminyl (N-acetyl) transferase 2 (I blood group)).
