Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Enables UDP-N-acetylglucosamine-dolichyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in UDP-N-acetylglucosamine metabolic process; dolichol metabolic process; and dolichol-linked oligosaccharide biosynthetic process. Predicted to be located in intracellular membrane-bounded organelle and membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital disorder of glycosylation Ij and congenital myasthenic syndrome 13. Orthologous to human DPAGT1 (dolichyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase 1).
