Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have manganese ion binding activity and polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in protein O-linked glycosylation via serine and protein O-linked glycosylation via threonine. Predicted to localize to the Golgi apparatus and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system and extraembryonic component. Orthologous to several human genes including POC1B-GALNT4 (POC1B-GALNT4 readthrough).
