GeneCards Summary for GANAB Gene
GANAB (Glucosidase II Alpha Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and N-Glycan biosynthesis. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and hydrolase activity, hydrolyzing O-glycosyl compounds. An important paralog of this gene is MGAM.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GANAB Gene
Cleaves sequentially the 2 innermost alpha-1,3-linked glucose residues from the Glc(2)Man(9)GlcNAc(2) oligosaccharide precursor of immature glycoproteins.
Glycosylases are a group of enzymes that includes glucosidases, mannosidases and heparanases. There are two glucosidase subtypes, both found in the gut. They hydrolyze terminal (1,4)alpha-glucosidic linkages and (1,6)beta-glucosidic linkages, liberating alpha-glucose and beta-glucose.
