Table 1 Enzymes associated with aberrant glycosylation as cancer biomarkers

From: Aberrant glycosylation associated with enzymes as cancer biomarkers

Enzyme Short form Implication in aberrant glycosylation
polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase ppGalNAc-T Increased incomplete systhesis of O-glycans
N-acetylglucosamine transferase V GlcNAcT-V Increasedβ1-6 branching of N-glycans
α 2-3 sialyltransferases ST3Gal I, ST3 Gal IV Increased expression of sialylated glycans
α 2-6 sialyltransferase ST6GalNAc
