    ..Thus, as with GalNAc-4-ST1, sequences N-terminal to the catalytic domain contribute to the specificity of GalNAc-4-ST2 toward terminal beta1,4-linked GalNAc. ..

    ..These combined results indicate that GalNAc4ST-1 and -2 play critical roles in forming sulfo-->4GalNAc beta 1-->4GlcNAc beta 1-->R in both N-glycans and O-glycans in a tissue-specific manner. ..

    ..By fluorescence in situ hybridization, the GalNAc4ST-1 and GalNAc4ST-2 genes were localized to mouse chromosome 7B3 distal-B5 proximal and chromosome 18A2 distal-B1 proximal, respectively. ..
