POMGNT1 protein O-linked mannose N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 1 (beta 1,2-)

Also known as: MEB; RP76; GNTI.2; LGMD2O; GnT I.2; MGAT1.2; gnT-I.2


This gene encodes a type II transmembrane protein that resides in the Golgi apparatus. It participates in O-mannosyl glycosylation and is specific for alpha linked terminal mannose. Mutations in this gene may be associated with muscle-eye-brain disease and several congenital muscular dystrophies. Alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different protein isoforms have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2014]
