Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable beta-1,3-galactosyl-O-glycosyl-glycoprotein beta-1,3-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity and manganese ion binding activity. Acts upstream of or within protein O-linked glycosylation. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Predicted to be integral component of Golgi membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; liver; nervous system; and respiratory system. Used to study Walker-Warburg syndrome and muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in lissencephaly; muscular dystrophy (multiple); and retinitis pigmentosa. Orthologous to human POMGNT1 (protein O-linked mannose N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 1 (beta 1,2-)).
