Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits UDP-N-acetylglucosamine-dolichyl-phosphate N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in UDP-N-acetylglucosamine metabolic process; dolichol metabolic process; and dolichyl diphosphate biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to integral component of membrane and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. 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).
