A novel beta1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (beta1, 6GnT) cDNA was identified by a BLAST search using the amino acid sequence of human GnT-V as a query. The full-length sequence was determined by a combination of 5'-rapid amplification of cDNA end analysis and a further data base search. The open reading frame encodes a 792 amino acid protein with a type II membrane protein structure typical of glycosyltransferases. The entire sequence identity to human GnT-V is 42%. When pyridylaminated… CONTINUE READING
