Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity; 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 Golgi apparatus and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Used to study hyperphosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis. Orthologous to human GALNT3 (polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 3).
