Galactose-3-O-sulfotransferases is a family of several mammalian galactose-3-O-sulfotransferase proteins. Gal-3-O-sulfotransferase is thought to play a critical role in 3'-sulfation of N-acetyllactosamine in both O- and N-glycans.[1]

Human proteins from this family[edit]

GAL3ST1; GAL3ST2; GAL3ST3; GAL3ST4; GP3ST;
