Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Predicted to have glucuronosyltransferase activity. Involved in axon guidance and protein glycosylation. Predicted to localize to Golgi apparatus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and thymus. Used to study muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy type A13. Orthologous to human B4GAT1 (beta-1,4-glucuronyltransferase 1).
