Summaries for ALG5 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALG5 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the glycosyltransferase 2 family. The encoded protein participates in glucosylation of the oligomannose core in N-linked glycosylation of proteins. The addition of glucose residues to the oligomannose core is necessary to ensure substrate recognition, and therefore, effectual transfer of the oligomannose core to the nascent glycoproteins. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ALG5 Gene

ALG5 (ALG5, Dolichyl-Phosphate Beta-Glucosyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include oligosaccharyl transferase activity and dolichyl-phosphate beta-glucosyltransferase activity.
