Heparan sulfate 2-O-sulfotransferase 1

2-O-sulfotransferase, Hs2st, heparan sulfate 2-O-sulfotransferase, HS2ST1, HS 2-O-sulfotransferase
Heparan sulfate biosynthetic enzymes are key components in generating a myriad of distinct heparan sulfate fine structures that carry out multiple biologic activities. This gene encodes a member of the heparan sulfate biosynthetic enzyme family that transfers sulfate to the 2 position of the iduronic acid residue of heparan sulfate. The disruption of this gene resulted in no kidney formation in knockout embryonic mice, indicating that the absence of this enzyme may interfere with the signaling required for kidney formation. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different proteins have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2008] (from NCBI)

Using this new approach, we report that the association of C5-epimerase and 2-O-sulfotransferase, which catalyze the production of iduronic acid and its 2-O-sulfation, respectively, is necessary to processively generate extended sequences of contiguous IdoA2S-containing disaccharides, whereas modifications are randomly introduced when the enzymes are uncoupled.

One step in the current process to prepare bioengineered heparin involves the conversion of N-sulfo heparosan, rich in → 4)GlcNS(1 → 4) GlcA(1 → sequences (where S is sulfo, GlcN is α-D-glucosamine, and GlcA is β-D-glucuronic acid), to a critical intermediate, rich in → 4)GlcNS(1 → 4) IdoA2S(1 → sequences (where S is sulfo and IdoA is α-L-iduronic acid), using 2-O-sulfotransferase (2-OST) and C5 epimerase (C5-epi).
