Chromosome mapping of the GD3 synthase gene (SIAT8) in human and mouse.

GD3 synthase (CMP-NeuAc:NeuAc alpha 2-3Gal beta 1-4Glc beta 1-1'Cer alpha 2,8-sialyltransferase) is a member of the sialyltransferase family, whose members are characterized by having the sialyl motif and a key regulatory enzyme that controls the ganglioside biosynthesis pathway. The chromosomal location of the GD3 synthase gene (SIAT8) was determined in… (More)
