25568325 identified two key structural features forming stacking interactions with the aglycone, and the hydrogen bond between the His(195) nitrogen backbone and the carbonyl group of the coumarinyl molecule to develop a tight binder of hbeta4GalT7
24755949 Our findings demonstrate that B4GALT7 is the causative gene for LRS. The identification of a unique homozygous mutation argues in favor of a founder effect. B4GALT7 encodes a galactosyltransferase.
24052259 a Michaelis complex of a glycosyltransferase has been described, and it clearly suggests an SN2 type catalytic mechanism for the beta4GalT7 enzyme.
20843813 Two evolutionary conserved motifs, (163)DVD(165) and (221)FWGWGREDDE(230), are central in the organization of the enzyme active site.
20809901 Mutated ennzyme affects glycosaminoglycan synthesis and is involved Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
20691685 This study establishes the molecular basis for beta4GalT7 defects associated with altered GAG synthesis in Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
18158310 Study suggests an heparan sulfate-dependent basic mechanism behind the altered wound repair phenotype of beta4GalT-7-deficient Ehlers-Danlos syndrome patients.
16583246 reduced beta4GalT-7 activity resulting in defective glycosylation of decorin and biglycan may be responsible for the complex molecular pathology in beta4GalT-7 deficient Ehlers-Danlos syndrome patients
15522873 phosphorylation of Xyl on the C-2 position prevents GalT-I activity
