The role of UDP-galactose transporter (UGT; SLC35A2) and UDP-N-acetylglucosamine transporter (NGT; SLC35A3) in glycosylation of macromolecules may be coupled and either of the transporters may partially replace the function played by its partner.
Six strong candidate causative mutations including polymorphisms previously reported in FANCI (Brachyspina), SLC35A3 (CVM), APAF1 (HH1) and three novel mutations with very damaging effect on the protein structure, according to SIFT and Polyphen-2, were detected in GART, SHBG and SLC37A2 genes.

Expression of SLC1A4 (glutamate and neutral amino acid transporter), SLC13A2 (dicarboxylate transporter), and SLC35B4 (UDP-xylose: UDP-N-acetylglucosamine transporter) mRNAs was limited to glandular epithelium (GE), while SLC4A5 (sodium bicarbonate cotransporter) and SLC7A3 (cationic amino acid transporter) mRNAs were expressed predominantly in the luminal epithelium of the magnum.
Complex vertebral malformation is caused by a single base mutation from G to T at the nucleotide position 559 in the bovine solute carrier family 35 member 3 (SLC35A3) gene exon 4 on Bos Taurus autosome (BTA) 3. The presence of the disease gene in Holstein dairy cattle has been reported in many countries.

Due to the exclusion of a point mutation in exon 4 of the solute carrier family 35 (UDP-N-acetylglucosamine (UDP-GlcNAc) transporter), member A3 (SLC35A3) gene, complex vertebral malformation (CVM) was ruled out.
Nishibori et al., Hiroshima, Japan. In Can Vet J, 2009
Fifteen mummified fetuses were tested by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for the mutation in the bovine SLC35A3 gene that causes complex vertebral malformation (CVM) and the pNC-5 gene which identifies N. caninum infection.
