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 UGGT2 Gene
UGGT2 (UDP-Glucose Glycoprotein Glucosyltransferase 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with UGGT2 include Basal Cell Nevus Syndrome. 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 transferase activity, transferring glycosyl groups and UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase activity. An important paralog of this gene is UGGT1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for UGGT2 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 (By similarity).
