4.D.2 The Glycosyl Transferase 2 (GT2) Family

The GT2 (COG0392) family has been implicated in several distinct functions including drug resistance and various enzymatic activities. Most members have about 8 - 10 TMSs plus a ~340aa C-terminal hydrophilic domain that may have catalytic activity. These proteins are implicated in glycosyl transfer with concomitant export across the membrane. They show very significant similarity to extra N-terminal domains in 3.A.3.4.3 and 4 as well as the C-terminal domain in 2.A.1.3.43 (unpublished results).
