Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.1)
Predicted to enable N-acetylgalactosamine 4-O-sulfotransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in dermatan sulfate proteoglycan metabolic process. Predicted to act upstream of or within dermatan sulfate biosynthetic process. Predicted to be located in Golgi apparatus and membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; liver; and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome musculocontractural type 1. Orthologous to human CHST14 (carbohydrate sulfotransferase 14).
