EXTL3 Glycosyltransferase which regulates the biosynthesis of heparan sulfate (HS). Important for both skeletal development and hematopoiesis, through the formation of HS proteoglycans (HSPGs). Required for the function of REG3A in regulating keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation. Belongs to the glycosyltransferase 47 family. Ubiquitous. Expressed in keratinocytes.
