Gene: XYLT2 (xylosyltransferase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: XYLT2
Name: xylosyltransferase 2
RGD ID: 731564
Description: Exhibits magnesium ion binding activity; manganese ion binding activity; and protein xylosyltransferase activity. Involved in chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan biosynthetic process and heparan sulfate proteoglycan biosynthetic process. Localizes to extracellular space. Implicated in pseudoxanthoma elasticum.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: peptide O-xylosyltransferase 1; PXYLT2; SOS; UDP-D-xylose:proteoglycan core protein beta-D-xylosyltransferase; XT-II; XT2; xylosyltransferase II; xylT-II
