B3GALTL; B3GTL; B3Glc-T; Gal-T; beta3Glc-T

Associated disorders

The B3GLCT gene is associated with autosomal recessive Peters-plus syndrome also known as B3GLCT-congenital disorder of glycosylation (Medgen UID: 163204).

Pathogenic variants in the B3GLCT gene are the only known cause of Peters plus syndrome.

The B3GLCT gene encodes a beta 3-glucosyltransferase protein. This protein transfers glucose to O-linked fucosylglycans specifically on thrombospondin Type 1 repeat (TSR) domains. Protein O-linked fucosylation is associated with many important biological functions such as Notch signaling.

Assay and technical information

Invitae is a College of American Pathologists (CAP)-accredited and Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)-certified clinical diagnostic laboratory performing full-gene sequencing and deletion/duplication analysis using next-generation sequencing technology (NGS).

Our sequence analysis covers clinically important regions of each gene, including coding exons, +/- 10 base pairs of adjacent intronic sequence in the transcript listed below. In addition, analysis covers the select non-coding variants specifically defined in the table below. Any variants that fall outside these regions are not analyzed. Any specific limitations in the analysis of these genes are also listed in the table below.

Our analysis detects most intragenic deletions and duplications at single exon resolution. However, in rare situations, single-exon copy number events may not be analyzed due to inherent sequence properties or isolated reduction in data quality. If you are requesting the detection of a specific single-exon copy number variation, please contact Client Services before placing your order.
