Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have manganese ion binding activity and polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in immunoglobulin biosynthetic process and protein O-linked glycosylation. Predicted to localize to Golgi stack and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain ventricular layer; floor plate; lens; and lung mesenchyme. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital disorder of glycosylation type II. Orthologous to human GALNT2 (polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 2).
