Xylosyltransferase II

XT-II, XT2, XYLT2, xylosyltransferase II, SLC6A18, XYLT-II
The protein encoded by this gene is an isoform of xylosyltransferase, which belongs to a family of glycosyltransferases. This enzyme transfers xylose from UDP-xylose to specific serine residues of the core protein and initiates the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycan chains in proteoglycans including chondroitin sulfate, heparan sulfate, heparin and dermatan sulfate. The enzyme activity, which is increased in scleroderma patients, is a diagnostic marker for the determination of sclerotic activity in systemic sclerosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Real-time-quantitative PCR showed that sesamin promoted the expression of the genes encoding the core protein (ACAN) of the major CS-PG aggrecan and the biosynthetic enzymes (XYLT1, XYLT2, CHSY1 and CHPF) required for the synthesis of CS-GAG side chains.
The missing "link": an autosomal recessive short stature syndrome caused by a hypofunctional XYLT1 mutation.
Ozkinay et al., Köln, Germany. In Hum Genet, 2014
Defects in the enzymes catalyzing steps two to four of the linker chain synthesis have been shown to cause autosomal recessive human phenotypes while no mutation has yet been reported in humans for the xylosyltransferases 1 and 2 (XT1 and XT2), the initiating enzymes in the linker chain formation.
Novel candidate genes putatively involved in stress fracture predisposition detected by whole-exome sequencing.
