CD57 antigens

CD57 antigens general information

CD57 Gene ID 27087
CD57 Official Full Name beta-1,3-glucuronyltransferase 1
CD57 Alias B3GAT1, GLCATP, GLCUATP, HNK1, LEU7, NK-1, NK1
CD57 Cellular Expression  
CD57 Ligand/Receptor/Association CD62L, CD62P
CD57 Function Adhesion molecule.
CD57 Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the glucuronyltransferase gene family. These enzymes exhibit strict acceptor specificity, recognizing nonreducing terminal sugars and their anomeric linkages. This gene product functions as the key enzyme in a glucuronyl transfer reaction during the biosynthesis of the carbohydrate epitope HNK-1 (human natural killer-1, also known as CD57 and LEU7). Alternate transcriptional splice variants have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
