ST3Gal-III is a member of the N-acetyllactosaminide α-2,3-sialyltransferase family, transferring sialic acid from CMP-NeuAc in α-2,3 linkage preferentially to Galβ1-3GlcNAc, but also to Galβ1-4GlcNAc and Galβ1-3GalNAc termini on glycoproteins and glycolipids. It was among the first sialyltransferases purified and cloned (Wen et al. 1992), leading to the discovery of sialyltransferase sialyl motifs.
