Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MGAT2 Gene
The product of this gene is a Golgi enzyme catalyzing an essential step in the conversion of oligomannose to complex N-glycans. The enzyme has the typical glycosyltransferase domains: a short N-terminal cytoplasmic domain, a hydrophobic non-cleavable signal-anchor domain, and a C-terminal catalytic domain. Mutations in this gene may lead to carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome, type II. The coding region of this gene is intronless. Transcript variants with a spliced 5' UTR may exist, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for MGAT2 Gene
MGAT2 (Mannosyl (Alpha-1,6-)-Glycoprotein Beta-1,2-N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MGAT2 include congenital disorder of glycosylation, type iia and autosomal recessive disease. Among its related pathways are Metabolism 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 carbohydrate binding and alpha-1,6-mannosylglycoprotein 2-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity.
