|Official Full Name||ST8 alpha-N-acetyl-neuraminide alpha-2,8-sialyltransferase 2|
|Background||The protein encoded by this gene is a type II membrane protein that is thought to catalyze the transfer of sialic acid from CMP-sialic acid to N-linked oligosaccharides and glycoproteins. The encoded protein may be found in the Golgi apparatus and may be involved in the production of polysialic acid, a modulator of the adhesive properties of neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM1). This protein is a member of glycosyltransferase family 29.|

ST8SIA2 involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways ST8SIA2 participated on our site, such as Asparagine N-linked glycosylation, Axon guidance, Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with ST8SIA2 were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.

ST8SIA2 has several biochemical functions, for example, alpha-N-acetylneuraminate alpha-2,8-sialyltransferase activity, sialic acid binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by ST8SIA2 itself. We selected most functions ST8SIA2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with ST8SIA2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
