Gene Family: Beta-1,3-glucuronyltransferases (B3GAT)

Also known as : "Galactosylgalactosylxylosylprotein 3-beta-glucuronosyltransferases", "Glucuronosyltransferases, type I", "Uridine diphosphate glucuronic acid:acceptor glucuronosyltransferases"
A subset of : Glycosyltransferases

Beta-1,3-glucuronyltransferases: Beta-1,3-glucuronyltransferases (EC catalyse the following reaction: UDP-glucuronate + 3-beta-D-galactosyl-4-beta-D-galactosyl-O-beta-D-xylosylprotein <=> UDP + 3-beta-D-glucuronosyl-3-beta-D-galactosyl-4-beta-D-galactosyl-O-beta-D-xylosylprotein. [Source: HGNC]
