ALG12 ALG12 alpha-1,6-mannosyltransferase

Gene ID: 79087, updated on 23-Nov-2021
Gene type: protein coding
Also known as: CDG1G; ECM39; hALG12; PP14673


This gene encodes a member of the glycosyltransferase 22 family. The encoded protein catalyzes the addition of the eighth mannose residue in an alpha-1,6 linkage onto the dolichol-PP-oligosaccharide precursor (dolichol-PP-Man(7)GlcNAc(2)) required for protein glycosylation. Mutations in this gene have been associated with congenital disorder of glycosylation type Ig (CDG-Ig)characterized by abnormal N-glycosylation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
