Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits N-acetylglucosaminyl-proteoglycan 4-beta-glucuronosyltransferase activity and glucuronosyl-N-acetylglucosaminyl-proteoglycan 4-alpha-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; cell surface receptor signaling pathway; and leukocyte migration. Localizes to integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; extraembryonic component; genitourinary system; and limb. Used to study autism spectrum disorder and hereditary multiple exostoses. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in chondrosarcoma; hereditary multiple exostoses; and trichorhinophalangeal syndrome type II. Orthologous to human EXT1 (exostosin glycosyltransferase 1).
