23395820 EXTL2 functions to suppress GAG biosynthesis that is enhanced by a xylose kinase and the EXTL2-dependent mechanism that regulates GAG biosynthesis might be a "quality control system" for proteoglycans
19690583 Lysosomal glycosaminoglycan levels in mucopolysaccharidosis are reduced by EXTL2 gene silencing.
15831490 donor binding appears to undergo two distinct steps, beginning with the N-acetyl group expelling water from the donor- enzyme complex into the bulk solvent followed by positioning of the donor into the binding site for interactions with the enzyme
