Summaries for MLEC Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MLEC Gene

  • This gene encodes the carbohydrate-binding protein malectin which is a Type I membrane-anchored endoplasmic reticulum protein. This protein has an affinity for Glc2Man9GlcNAc2 (G2M9) N-glycans and is involved in regulating glycosylation in the endoplasmic reticulum. This protein has also been shown to interact with ribophorin I and may be involved in the directing the degradation of misfolded proteins. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MLEC Gene

  • Carbohydrate-binding protein with a strong ligand preference for Glc2-N-glycan. May play a role in the early steps of protein N-glycosylation (By similarity).
