CHST7

A gene on chromosome Xp11.23 that encodes a sulfotransferase which catalyses the transfer of sulfate to position 6 of non-reducing N-acetylglucosamine GlcNAc residues, acting on mannose-linked GlcNAc; it also transfers sulfate to position 6 of the GalNAc residue of chondroitin. It is widely (and highly) expressed in the heart, spleen, liver and ovaries.
