Gene: ALG2 (ALG2 alpha-1,3/1,6-mannosyltransferase) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ALG2
Name: ALG2 alpha-1,3/1,6-mannosyltransferase
Description: Exhibits several functions, including alpha-1,3-mannosyltransferase activity; calcium-dependent protein binding activity; and protein heterodimerization activity. Involved in dolichol-linked oligosaccharide biosynthetic process; protein glycosylation in endoplasmic reticulum; and response to calcium ion. Localizes to several cellular components, including the actin cytoskeleton; cytosol; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Implicated in congenital disorder of glycosylation Ii and congenital myasthenic syndrome 14.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED

NCBI Annotation Information: Note: ALG2 (Gene ID: 85365) and PDCD6 (Gene ID: 10016) share the ALG2 symbol/alias in common. ALG2 is a widely used alternative name for programmed cell death 6 (PDCD6), whose synonym is apoptosis-linked gene-2. This can be confused with the official symbol for ALG2, alpha-1,3/1,6-mannosyltransferase (ALG2). [31 May 2018]
