Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have UDP-N-acetylglucosamine-lysosomal-enzyme N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase activity. Involved in carbohydrate phosphorylation and secretion of lysosomal enzymes. Predicted to localize to the Golgi membrane. Used to study inclusion-cell disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in inclusion-cell disease and pseudo-Hurler polydystrophy. Orthologous to human GNPTAB (N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate transferase subunits alpha and beta).
