EC 2.4.1.41

Accepted name: polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase

Reaction: UDP-N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine + polypeptide = UDP + N-acetyl-D-galactosaminyl-polypeptide

Other name(s): protein-UDP acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyl transferase; UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine:κ-casein polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; uridine diphosphoacetylgalactosamine-glycoprotein acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; glycoprotein acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; polypeptide-N-acetylgalactosamine transferase; UDP-acetylgalactosamine-glycoprotein acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; UDP-acetylgalactosamine:peptide-N-galactosaminyltransferase; UDP-GalNAc:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; UDP-N-acetyl-α-D-galactosamine:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine-glycoprotein N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine-protein N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase; UDP-N-acetylgalactosamine:protein N-acetylgalactosaminyl transferase; ppGalNAc-T; polypeptide GalNAc-transferase

Systematic name: UDP-N-acetyl-D-galactosamine:polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyl-transferase

Comments: Requires both Mn2+ and Ca2+. The glycosyl residue is transferred to threonine or serine hydroxy groups on the polypeptide core of submaxillary mucin, κ-casein, apofetuin and some other acceptors of high molecular mass.
