Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have alpha-1,3-mannosyltransferase activity and dolichyl pyrophosphate Man9GlcNAc2 alpha-1,3-glucosyltransferase activity. Involved in protein N-linked glycosylation via asparagine. Predicted to localize to endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital disorder of glycosylation Ih and polycystic liver disease. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; midbrain; respiratory system; telencephalon; and urinary system. Orthologous to human ALG8 (ALG8 alpha-1,3-glucosyltransferase).
