Literature on HAS3

HAS3 [ENSP00000304440]

Hyaluronic acid synthase 3; Catalyzes the addition of GlcNAc or GlcUA monosaccharides to the nascent hyaluronan polymer. Therefore, it is essential to hyaluronan synthesis a major component of most extracellular matrices that has a structural role in tissues architectures and regulates cell adhesion, migration and differentiation. This is one of the isozymes catalyzing that reaction (By similarity); Glycosyltransferase family 2
