Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits heparan sulfate 6-O-sulfotransferase activity. Involved in blood vessel development; heparan sulfate proteoglycan biosynthetic process, enzymatic modification; and lung alveolus development. Predicted to localize to nuclear speck. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 15 with or without anosmia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human HS6ST1 (heparan sulfate 6-O-sulfotransferase 1).
