Galactose-3-O-sulfotransferase 2

Gal3ST-2, GP3ST, Gal3ST-3, a Gal 3-O-sulphotransferase
This gene encodes a member of the galactose-3-O-sulfotransferase protein family. The product of this gene catalyzes sulfonation by transferring a sulfate group to the hydroxyl at C-3 of nonreducing beta-galactosyl residues, and it can act on both type 1 and type 2 (Galbeta 1-3/1-4GlcNAc-R) oligosaccharides with similar efficiencies, and on core 1 glycans. This enzyme has been implicated in tumor metastasis processes. This gene is different from the GAL3ST3 gene located on chromosome 11, which has also been referred to as GAL3ST2 and encodes a related enzyme with distinct tissue distribution and substrate specificities, compared to galactose-3-O-sulfotransferase 2.

A remodeling system of the 3'-sulfo-Lewis a and 3'-sulfo-Lewis x epitopes.
Honke et al., Suita, Japan. In J Biol Chem, 2001
To elucidate the physiological functions of 3'-sulfated Lewis epitopes, a remodeling system was developed using a combination of a betaGal-3-O-sulfotransferase GP3ST, hitherto known alpha1,3/1,4-fucosyltransferases (FucT-III, IV, V, VI, VII, and IX) and arylsulfatase A. The pyridylaminated (PA) lacto-N-tetraose (Galbeta1-3GlcNAcbeta1-3Galbeta1-4Glc) was first converted to 3'-sulfolacto-N-fucopentaose II (sulfo-3Galbeta1-3(Fucalpha1-4)GlcNAcbeta1-3Galbeta1-4Glc)-PA by sequential reactions with GP3ST and FucT-III.
