LARGE (like-glycosyltransferase) and LARGE2 (glycosyltransferase-like 1B, Gyltl1b) are homologous Golgi glycosyltransferases possessing two catalytic domains with homology to members of glycosyltransferase families GT8 and GT49. Mutations in human and mouse Large result in muscular dystrophy due to underglycosylation of dystroglycan. The systemic function of LARGE2 is unknown, but at cellular level the enzyme can substitute LARGE in glycosylating dystroglycan. Here we show that LARGE2 catalyzes the same glycosylation reaction as LARGE. It is a bifunctional glycosyltransferase using UDP-xylose and UDP-glucuronic acid as donor sugars to produce a xyloglucuronan with alternating xylose and glucuronic acid residues.
