Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TUSC3 Gene
This gene is a candidate tumor suppressor gene. It is located within a homozygously deleted region of a metastatic prostate cancer. The gene is expressed in most nonlymphoid human tissues including prostate, lung, liver, and colon. Expression was also detected in many epithelial tumor cell lines. Two transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TUSC3 Gene
TUSC3 (Tumor Suppressor Candidate 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TUSC3 include Autosomal Recessive Non-Syndromic Intellectual Disability and Non-Syndromic Intellectual Disability. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Protein processing in endoplasmic reticulum. GO annotations related to this gene include magnesium ion transmembrane transporter activity and dolichyl-diphosphooligosaccharide-protein glycotransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is MAGT1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TUSC3 Gene
Acts as accessory component of the N-oligosaccharyl transferase (OST) complex which catalyzes the transfer of a high mannose oligosaccharide from a lipid-linked oligosaccharide donor to an asparagine residue within an Asn-X-Ser/Thr consensus motif in nascent polypeptide chains. Involved in N-glycosylation of STT3B-dependent substrates. Specifically required for the glycosylation of a subset of acceptor sites that are near cysteine residues; in this function seems to act redundantly with MAGT1. In its oxidized form proposed to form transient mixed disulfides with a glycoprotein substrate to facilitate access of STT3B to the unmodified acceptor site. Has also oxidoreductase-independent functions in the STT3B-containing OST complex possibly involving substrate recognition.
