Summaries for DOLK Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DOLK Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene catalyzes the CTP-mediated phosphorylation of dolichol, and is involved in the synthesis of Dol-P-Man, which is an essential glycosyl carrier lipid for C- and O-mannosylation, N- and O-linked glycosylation of proteins, and for the biosynthesis of glycosyl phosphatidylinositol anchors in endoplasmic reticulum. Mutations in this gene are associated with dolichol kinase deficiency.[provided by RefSeq, Apr 2010]

GeneCards Summary for DOLK Gene

DOLK (Dolichol Kinase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DOLK include congenital disorder of glycosylation, type im and dk1-cdg. 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 dolichol kinase activity.

Disorders for DOLK Gene

(1) OMIM Diseases for DOLK Gene (610746)


  • Congenital disorder of glycosylation 1M (CDG1M) [MIM:610768]: A multisystem disorder caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins. Congenital disorders of glycosylation result in a wide variety of clinical features, such as defects in the nervous system development, psychomotor retardation, dysmorphic features, hypotonia, coagulation disorders, and immunodeficiency. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions. CDG1M is a very severe disease with death occurring in early life. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17273964}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
