Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have UDP-N-acetylglucosamine-lysosomal-enzyme N-acetylglucosaminephosphotransferase activity. Involved in carbohydrate phosphorylation and secretion of lysosomal enzymes. Predicted to localize to Golgi membrane. Used to study mucolipidosis II alpha/beta. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in mucolipidosis II alpha/beta and mucolipidosis III alpha/beta. Orthologous to human GNPTAB (N-acetylglucosamine-1-phosphate transferase subunits alpha and beta).
