The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of a bipartite UDP-N-acetylglucosamine transferase. It heterodimerizes with asparagine-linked glycosylation 14 homolog to form a functional UDP-GlcNAc glycosyltransferase that catalyzes the second sugar addition of the highly conserved oligosaccharide precursor in endoplasmic reticulum N-linked glycosylation. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]
GeneCards Summary for ALG13 Gene
ALG13 (ALG13, UDP-N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALG13 include congenital disorder of glycosylation, type ie and non-syndromic x-linked intellectual disability. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and N-Glycan biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and cysteine-type peptidase activity. An important paralog of this gene is OTUD4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ALG13 Gene
Isoform 1: Possible multifunctional enzyme with both glycosyltransferase and deubiquitinase activities.
Isoform 2: May be involved in protein N-glycosylation, second step of the dolichol-linked oligosaccharide pathway.
