Previous GeneCards Identifiers for DPM2 Gene
Dolichol-phosphate mannose (Dol-P-Man) serves as a donor of mannosyl residues on the lumenal side of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Lack of Dol-P-Man results in defective surface expression of GPI-anchored proteins. Dol-P-Man is synthesized from GDP-mannose and dolichol-phosphate on the cytosolic side of the ER by the enzyme dolichyl-phosphate mannosyltransferase. The protein encoded by this gene is a hydrophobic protein that contains 2 predicted transmembrane domains and a putative ER localization signal near the C terminus. This protein associates with DPM1 in vivo and is required for the ER localization and stable expression of DPM1 and also enhances the binding of dolichol-phosphate to DPM1.

GeneCards Summary for DPM2 Gene
DPM2 (Dolichyl-Phosphate Mannosyltransferase Polypeptide 2, Regulatory Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DPM2 include congenital disorder of glycosylation, type iu and congenital disorder of glycosylation, type ie. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. GO annotations related to this gene include enzyme regulator activity and dolichyl-phosphate beta-D-mannosyltransferase activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DPM2 Gene
Regulates the biosynthesis of dolichol phosphate-mannose. Regulatory subunit of the dolichol-phosphate mannose (DPM) synthase complex; essential for the ER localization and stable expression of DPM1. When associated with the GPI-GlcNAc transferase (GPI-GnT) complex enhances but is not essential for its activity.
