Glossary: 3′-phosphoadenylyl sulfate = PAPS
Other name(s): chondroitin 6-O-sulfotransferase; 3′-phosphoadenosine 5′-phosphosulfate (PAPS):chondroitin sulfate sulfotransferase; terminal 6-sulfotransferase
Systematic name: 3′-phosphoadenylyl-sulfate:chondroitin 6′-sulfotransferase
Comments: The sulfation is at the 6-position of N-acetylgalactosamine residues of chondroitin. Not identical with EC chondroitin 4-sulfotransferase.
