  Domain Name: pp-GalNAc-T
pp-GalNAc-T initiates the formation of mucin-type O-linked glycans. UDP-GalNAc: polypeptide alpha-N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferases (pp-GalNAc-T) initiate the formation of mucin-type, O-linked glycans by catalyzing the transfer of alpha-N-acetylgalactosamine (GalNAc) from UDP-GalNAc to hydroxyl groups of Ser or Thr residues of core proteins to form the Tn antigen (GalNAc-a-1-O-Ser/Thr). These enzymes are type II membrane proteins with a GT-A type catalytic domain and a lectin domain located on the lumen side of the Golgi apparatus. In human, there are 15 isozymes of pp-GalNAc-Ts, representing the largest of all glycosyltransferase families. Each isozyme has unique but partially redundant substrate specificity for glycosylation sites on acceptor proteins.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
