Carbohydrate Sulfotransferase 4 (CHST4)

LSST; GST3; Gn6st-2; L-selectin ligand sulfotransferase; N-acetylglucosamine 6-O-sulfotransferase 2; Galactose/N-acetylglucosamine/N-acetylglucosamine 6-O-sulfotransferase 3

Carbohydrate Sulfotransferase 4 (CHST4)
CHST4, a golgi resident carbohydrate sulfotransferase, has been described as an HEV restricted sulfotransferase in part responsible for the sulfation step required for L selectin: PNAd interaction. The MECA79 antibody which recognizes sulfated PNAd provides a useful tool for monitoring sulfotransferase activity. The presence of both CHST4 and the MECA79 sulfated epitope have been described in HEV as well as lymphoid aggregates and tertiary lymphoid tissues at the sites of chronic inflammation.
Specifically expressed in HEV. Weakly expressed in spleen. Not expressed in other tissues. Expressed in colonic mucinous adenocarcinoma. Upon cytokine activation, it is expressed at low level.
