GeneCards Summary for MUC12 Gene

MUC12 (Mucin 12, Cell Surface Associated) is a Protein Coding gene. 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. An important paralog of this gene is MUC17.
