CHST4

A gene on chromosome 16q22.2 that encodes a sulfotransferase which catalyses the transfer of sulfate to residues within mucin-associated glycans. These glycans serve as L-selectin ligands, which are present in high endothelial cells (HEVs) and play a central role in lymphocyte homing to sites of inflammation.

Molecular pathology
CHST4 is expressed in colonic mucinous adenocarcinoma.

The LSST project may still have a long way to go but with collaborative efforts, major challenges have been surpassed this far to achieve the goal of revolutionizing cosmic studies.
Plus, says Jones, LSST could detect an Earth-sized planet out to between 300 and 500 astronomical units, depending on how reflective its surface is.
As the primary component of all energy in the universe, the still-mysterious dark energy is perhaps the most important research target for LSST and the physicists who are building it.
Not only should LSST revolutionize our understanding of the universe, its contents and the laws that govern its behaviour, but it will also transform the way all of us, from kindergarteners to professional astrophysicists, use telescopes," said Tony Tyson, LSST director and a professor of physics at the University of California, Davis, said.

The Transient Events application is a prototype for the way the LSST is going to work, allowing us to practice now with a manageable number of alerts.
By 2016, LSST is expected to be scanning not only for asteroids and supernovas but also for details of dark matter--the majority of the universe's mass, now unseen--and the dark energy serving as a mysterious, accelerating force (SN: 2/2/08, p.
When operational, every three nights, the LSST will take a full image of the night sky capturing billions of objects in six colors to create a Hollywood-like motion picture of the universe, according to Vanguard.
Abstract: Large surveys will be responsible for a significant fraction of the major discoveries in astronomy in the coming decade, with considerable funds and resources devoted to projects such as LSST, DES and Pan-STARRS.
It is stated that the LSST large aperture, wide-field optical imaging facility will explore dark matter, dark energy, the "transient" optical sky including hazardous asteroids and astronomical events, and the formation and structure of the Milky Way.
