  • Cell surface proteoglycan that bears heparan sulfate.
  • A tetrasaccharide linker sequence is required for GAG synthesis
  • Defective B3GAT3 causes JDSSDHD
  • Defective B4GALT7 causes EDS, progeroid type
  • Defective EXT1 causes exostoses 1, TRPS2 and CHDS
  • Defective EXT2 causes exostoses 2

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs2147190) and 12 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
