Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits chondroitin 6-sulfotransferase activity and proteoglycan sulfotransferase activity. Involved in T cell homeostasis and chondroitin sulfate biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to trans-Golgi network. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; genitourinary system; gut; immune system; and respiratory system. Used to study schizophrenia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in osteochondrodysplasia and spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia with congenital joint dislocations. Orthologous to human CHST3 (carbohydrate sulfotransferase 3).
