Summaries for UGGT1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for UGGT1 Gene

  • UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGT) is a soluble protein of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) that selectively reglucosylates unfolded glycoproteins, thus providing quality control for protein transport out of the ER.[supplied by OMIM, Oct 2009]

GeneCards Summary for UGGT1 Gene

UGGT1 (UDP-Glucose Glycoprotein Glucosyltransferase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of proteins and Transport to the Golgi and subsequent modification. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include unfolded protein binding and UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UGGT2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UGGT1 Gene

  • Recognizes glycoproteins with minor folding defects. Reglucosylates single N-glycans near the misfolded part of the protein, thus providing quality control for protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum. Reglucosylated proteins are recognized by calreticulin for recycling to the endoplasmic reticulum and refolding or degradation.
