Summaries for ALG14 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALG14 Gene

  • This gene is a member of the glycosyltransferase 1 family. The encoded protein and ALG13 are thought to be subunits of UDP-GlcNAc transferase, which catalyzes the first two committed steps in endoplasmic reticulum N-linked glycosylation. Mutations in this gene have been linked to congenital myasthenic syndrome (CMSWTA). Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been identified. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2015]

GeneCards Summary for ALG14 Gene

ALG14 (ALG14, UDP-N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALG14 include Myasthenic Syndrome, Congenital, 15, Without Tubular Aggregates and Congenital Myasthenic Syndromes With Glycosylation Defect. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Metabolism.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ALG14 Gene

  • May be involved in protein N-glycosylation. May play a role in the second step of the dolichol-linked oligosaccharide pathway. May anchor the catalytic subunit ALG13 to the ER.
