High impact information on HS6ST1

  • When the cDNA for the entire coding sequence of the protein was inserted into a eukaryotic expression vector and transfected into COS-7 cells, the HS6ST activity increased 7-fold over the control [1].
  • Heparan-sulfate 6-sulfotransferase (HS6ST) catalyzes the transfer of sulfate from 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphosulfate to position 6 of the N-sulfoglucosamine residue of heparan sulfate [1].
  • In the present study, we have characterized HS6ST-2 and HS6ST-1 human isologues, including their chromosomal localizations [2].
  • Heparan sulphate 6- O -sulphotransferase (HS6ST) catalyses the transfer of sulphate from adenosine 3'-phosphate, 5'-phosphosulphate to the 6th position of the N -sulphoglucosamine residue in HS [2].
  • Our results suggest that two of these genes, HS6ST and E2F, and LINE 1 elements may be involved in ovarian development [3].
