Gene Symbol:

Gene Name:
hyaluronan synthase 2

XHas2 ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
extracellular matrix

Protein Function :
Catalyzes the addition of GlcNAc or GlcUA monosaccharides to the nascent hyaluronan polymer. Therefore, it is essential to hyaluronan synthesis a major component of most extracellular matrices that has...[+]
