GeneCards Summary for KRTCAP2 Gene
KRTCAP2 (Keratinocyte Associated Protein 2) is a Protein Coding gene.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KRTCAP2 Gene
Acts as accessory component of the N-oligosaccharyl transferase (OST) complex which catalyzes the transfer of a high mannose oligosaccharide from a lipid-linked oligosaccharide donor to an asparagine residue within an Asn-X-Ser/Thr consensus motif in nascent polypeptide chains. Required for efficient substrate-specific N-glycosylation probably involving the STT3A-containing OST complex. May be involved in N-glycosylation of APP (amyloid-beta precursor protein). Can modulate gamma-secretase cleavage of APP by enhancing endoprotelysis of PSEN1.
