Beta-1.3-galactosyl-O-glycosyl-glycoprotein beta-1.6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the GCNT1 gene.

This gene is a member of the beta-1.6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase genetic family. This is important for the formation of beta-Gal 1-3GlcNAc beta 1-6GalNAc structures and core 2 O-glycan branch. The gene coding this enzyme was originally mapped to 9q21, but was later localized to 9q13. Several alternative spliced variants, encoding the same protein have been identified.
