Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PIGV Gene
This gene encodes a mannosyltransferase enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI). GPI is a complex glycolipid that functions as a membrane anchor for many proteins and plays a role in multiple cellular processes including protein sorting and signal transduction. The encoded protein is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum and transfers the second mannose to the GPI backbone. Mutations in this gene are associated with hyperphosphatasia mental retardation syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]
GeneCards Summary for PIGV Gene
PIGV (Phosphatidylinositol Glycan Anchor Biosynthesis, Class V) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PIGV include hyperphosphatasia with mental retardation syndrome 1 and hyperphosphatasia with mental retardation syndrome. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring hexosyl groups and mannosyltransferase activity.
