GT13_GLCNAC-TI is involved in an essential step in the synthesis of complex or hybrid-type N-linked oligosaccharides.
Alpha-1,3-mannosyl-glycoprotein beta-1,2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (GLCNAC-T I , GNT-I) transfers N-acetyl-D-glucosamine from UDP to high-mannose glycoprotein N-oligosaccharide, an essential step in the synthesis of complex or hybrid-type N-linked oligosaccharides. The enzyme is an integral membrane protein localized to the Golgi apparatus. The catalytic domain is located at the C-terminus. These proteins are members of the glycosy transferase family 13.
