Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_C34F6.4, C34F6.4
hst-2 encodes the C. elegans ortholog of the heparan sulfate modifying enzyme 2O-sulfotransferase; by homology, HST-2 is predicted to function in heparan sulfate biosynthesis by catalyzing the chain-modifying sulfation of the C2 hydroxyl group of hexuronic acid; during development, hst-2 activity is required for normal body size, cell migration, and nervous system development; an hst-2::gfp reporter fusion is first expressed in embryos, continuing on through adulthood; expression is detected in many tissues, including the pharynx, hypodermis, muscles, vulva, and distal tip cells (DTCs) of the somatic gonad.
