The bifunctional enzymes heparan sulfate N-deacetylase/N-sulfotransferase 1-4 (NDST1-4) catalyse both the N-deacetylation and the N-sulfation of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) of heparan (Dixon et al. 1995, Duncan et al. 2006, Aikawa & Esko 1999, Aikawa et al. 2001). The N-deacetylation of a GlcNAc residue to a glucosamine residue is shown here.
