sulfotransferase

sul·fo·trans·fer·ase

(sŭl'fō-trans'fĕr-ās),
Generic term for enzymes in EC sub-subclass 2.8.2 catalyzing the transfer of a sulfate group from 3'-phosphoadenylyl sulfate (active sulfate) to the hydroxyl group of an acceptor, producing the sulfated derivative and 3'-phosphoadenosine 5'-phosphate.
Synonym(s): sulfikinase, sulfokinase
