GeneID: 287


Common Name: SULT2B1 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 19 (NC_000019.10) Locus: NG_029063.1 (SULT2B1)
HUGO Symbol: SULT2B1 Full Name: sulfotransferase family 2B member 1
Exons: 7 Introns: 6

The human hydroxysteroid sulfotransferase (SULT) 2B1 gene, a member of the cytosolic SULT gene superfamily, encodes 2 isoforms, SULT2B1a and SULT2B1b. SULT2B1b catalyzes the sulfonation of 3-beta hydroxysteroid hormones and cholesterol, whereas SULT2B1a preferentially catalyzes pregnenolone sulfonation. The SULT2B1 gene associated with diastolic dysfunction in patients with sickle cell disease (SCD) in spite of conflicting evidence in a pre-clinical SCD mouse model.

Synonyms: HSST2 , ARCI14
