NCBI Description of ST8SIA6

Sialic acid is a key determinate of oligosaccharide structures involved in cell-cell communication, cell-substrate interaction, adhesion, and protein targeting. ST8SIA6 belongs to a family of sialyltransferases (EC that synthesize sialylglycoconjugates (Takashima et al., 2002 [PubMed 11980897]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008].
