Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have dolichyl-phosphate-mannose-protein mannosyltransferase activity. Involved in extracellular matrix organization. Localizes to acrosomal vesicle and sarcoplasmic reticulum. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; gonad; heart; and hemolymphoid system gland. Used to study muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cardiomyopathy; cleft lip; lissencephaly; and muscular dystrophy (multiple). Orthologous to human POMT1 (protein O-mannosyltransferase 1).
