B4GALT6, also known as Beta-1,4-galactosyltransferase 6, is a key enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of complex carbohydrates known as glycosaminoglycans (GAGs). Positioned primarily within the Golgi apparatus of cells, B4GALT6 plays a crucial role in catalyzing the transfer of galactose residues from UDP-galactose to acceptor substrates, leading to the formation of specific glycosidic linkages. One of the primary functions of B4GALT6 is its involvement in the biosynthesis of proteoglycans, a class of glycoproteins containing GAG chains. Specifically, B4GALT6 catalyzes the addition of galactose residues to the core protein structure of proteoglycans, initiating the assembly of GAG chains such as chondroitin sulfate...
