Summaries for SLC35A1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC35A1 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is found in the membrane of the Golgi apparatus, where it transports nucleotide sugars into the Golgi. One such nucleotide sugar is CMP-sialic acid, which is imported into the Golgi by the encoded protein and subsequently glycosylated. Defects in this gene are a cause of congenital disorder of glycosylation type 2F (CDG2F). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Dec 2009]

GeneCards Summary for SLC35A1 Gene

SLC35A1 (Solute Carrier Family 35 Member A1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC35A1 include Congenital Disorder Of Glycosylation, Type Iif and Sialuria. Among its related pathways are Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification and Synthesis of substrates in N-glycan biosythesis. GO annotations related to this gene include sugar:proton symporter activity and CMP-N-acetylneuraminate transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC35A2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SLC35A1 Gene

  • Congenital disorder of glycosylation 2F (CDG2F) [MIM:603585]: CDGs are a family of severe inherited diseases caused by a defect in protein N-glycosylation. They are characterized by under-glycosylated serum proteins. These multisystem disorders present with a wide variety of clinical features, such as disorders of the nervous system development, psychomotor retardation, dysmorphic features, hypotonia, coagulation disorders, and immunodeficiency. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15576474}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
