Summaries for ALG6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ALG6 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the ALG6/ALG8 glucosyltransferase family. The encoded protein catalyzes the addition of the first glucose residue to the growing lipid-linked oligosaccharide precursor of N-linked glycosylation. Mutations in this gene are associated with congenital disorders of glycosylation type Ic. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for ALG6 Gene

ALG6 (ALG6, Alpha-1,3-Glucosyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ALG6 include Congenital Disorder Of Glycosylation, Type Ic and Alg6-Congenital Disorder Of Glycosylation.

  • Congenital disorder of glycosylation 1C (CDG1C) [MIM:603147]: A form of congenital disorder of glycosylation, a multisystem disorder caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins. Congenital disorders of glycosylation result in a wide variety of clinical features, such as defects in the nervous system development, psychomotor retardation, dysmorphic features, hypotonia, coagulation disorders, and immunodeficiency. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:10359825, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10914684, ECO:0000269 PubMed:10924277, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11106564, ECO:0000269 PubMed:11134235, ECO:0000269 PubMed:12357336, ECO:0000269 PubMed:14517965}.
