Summaries for SLC35A2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SLC35A2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the nucleotide-sugar transporter family. The encoded protein is a multi-pass membrane protein. It transports UDP-galactose from the cytosol into Golgi vesicles, where it serves as a glycosyl donor for the generation of glycans. Mutations in this gene cause congenital disorder of glycosylation type IIm (CDG2M). Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2014]

GeneCards Summary for SLC35A2 Gene

SLC35A2 (Solute Carrier Family 35 Member A2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SLC35A2 include Congenital Disorder Of Glycosylation, Type Iim and Slc35a2-Cdg. Among its related pathways are Transport of vitamins, nucleosides, and related molecules and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include sugar:proton symporter activity and UDP-galactose transmembrane transporter activity. An important paralog of this gene is SLC35A3.

  • Congenital disorder of glycosylation 2M (CDG2M) [MIM:300896]: A disorder characterized by developmental delay, hypotonia, ocular anomalies, and brain malformations. Othere more variable clinical features included seizures, hypsarrhythmia, poor feeding, microcephaly, recurrent infections, dysmorphic features, shortened limbs, and coagulation defects. Congenital disorders of glycosylation are caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins and a wide variety of clinical features. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23561849, ECO:0000269 PubMed:24115232}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
