Summaries for DPM1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for DPM1 Gene

  • Dolichol-phosphate mannose (Dol-P-Man) serves as a donor of mannosyl residues on the lumenal side of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Lack of Dol-P-Man results in defective surface expression of GPI-anchored proteins. Dol-P-Man is synthesized from GDP-mannose and dolichol-phosphate on the cytosolic side of the ER by the enzyme dolichyl-phosphate mannosyltransferase. Human DPM1 lacks a carboxy-terminal transmembrane domain and signal sequence and is regulated by DPM2. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for DPM1 Gene

DPM1 (Dolichyl-Phosphate Mannosyltransferase Polypeptide 1, Catalytic Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with DPM1 include congenital disorder of glycosylation, type ie and recurrent respiratory papillomatosis. 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. GO annotations related to this gene include mannose binding and dolichyl-phosphate beta-D-mannosyltransferase activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DPM1 Gene

  • Transfers mannose from GDP-mannose to dolichol monophosphate to form dolichol phosphate mannose (Dol-P-Man) which is the mannosyl donor in pathways leading to N-glycosylation, glycosyl phosphatidylinositol membrane anchoring, and O-mannosylation of proteins; catalytic subunit of the dolichol-phosphate mannose (DPM) synthase complex

  • Congenital disorder of glycosylation 1E (CDG1E) [MIM:608799]: A multisystem disorder caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins. Congenital disorders of glycosylation result in a wide variety of clinical features, such as defects in 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. Some CDG1E patients have features consistent with a dystroglycanopathy and congenital muscular dystrophy, including O-mannosylation defect, camptodactyly, elevated creatine kinase, motor delay and dystrophic changes on muscel biopsy. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10642597, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10642602, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15669674, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23856421}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
