High impact information on ALG8

  • This new synthetic phenotype made it possible to isolate the ALG8 locus, encoding a potential glucosyltransferase of the endoplasmic reticulum [1].
  • Alg6p has sequence similarity to Alg8p, a protein required for glucosylation of Glc1Man9GlcNAc2 [2].
  • As compared with alg5 and alg6, alg8 secreted a higher proportion of ExgII, which was paralleled by a significant drop in the proportion of ExgTuni and, to a lesser extent, of ExgII1/2 [3].

Biological context of ALG8

  • New phenotype of mutations deficient in glucosylation of the lipid-linked oligosaccharide: cloning of the ALG8 locus [1].
