GeneCards Summary for RFNG Gene
RFNG (RFNG O-Fucosylpeptide 3-Beta-N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with RFNG include Renal Cell Carcinoma, Papillary, 1. Among its related pathways are Development NOTCH1-mediated pathway for NF-KB activity modulation and PI3K-Akt signaling pathway. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include transferase activity, transferring glycosyl groups and O-fucosylpeptide 3-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is LFNG.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RFNG Gene
Glycosyltransferase that initiates the elongation of O-linked fucose residues attached to EGF-like repeats in the extracellular domain of Notch molecules. Modulates NOTCH1 activity by modifying O-fucose residues at specific EGF-like domains resulting in enhancement of NOTCH1 activation by DLL1 and JAG1. May be involved in limb formation and in neurogenesis.
