Technical Data
Carbohydrate Sulfotransferase 1 (CHST1, Carbohydrate (keratan sulfate Gal-6) sulfotransferase 1, C6ST, Carbohydrate Galactose/N-acetylglucosamine/N-acetylglucosamine 6-O-sulfotransferase 1, GST-1, Keratan sulfate Gal-6 sulfotransferase, KS6ST, KSGal6ST, K
The CHST family is comprised of 14 enzymes in humans. All members of this family are Golgi-localized type II membrane proteins. These enzymes transfer sulfate (i.e., sulfonate) onto the 6 O or 4 O positions of GalNAc, Gal and GlcNAc residues on glycoproteins, proteoglycans and glycolipids (1). This sulfation often creates specific epitopes that can be recognized by extracellular matrix proteins, cell surface receptors and viruses (2). CHST1, also known as keratan sulfate Gal6 sulfotransferase, transfers sulfate to position 6 of galactose residues on keratan sulfate (3). It also.has sulfotransferase activity on sialyl N-acetyllactosamine structures and participates in biosynthesis of selectin ligands that play a central role in lymphocyte homing at sites of inflammation (4). Human CHST1 shares 94% amino acid sequence identity with mouse
