Summaries for PIGX Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PIGX Gene

  • This gene encodes a type I transmembrane protein in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The protein is an essential component of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-mannosyltransferase I, which transfers the first of the four mannoses in the GPI-anchor precursors during GPI-anchor biosynthesis. Studies in rat indicate that the protein is translated from a non-AUG translation initiation site. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for PIGX Gene

PIGX (Phosphatidylinositol Glycan Anchor Biosynthesis Class X) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PIGX Gene

  • Essential component of glycosylphosphatidylinositol-mannosyltransferase 1 which transfers the first of the 4 mannoses in the GPI-anchor precursors during GPI-anchor biosynthesis. Probably acts by stabilizing the mannosyltransferase PIGM (By similarity).
