High impact information on ALG9

  • Stepwise assembly of the lipid-linked oligosaccharide in the endoplasmic reticulum of Saccharomyces cerevisiae: identification of the ALG9 gene encoding a putative mannosyl transferase [1].
  • The Saccharomyces cerevisiae alg (asparagine-linked glycosylation) mutants fail to synthesize oligosaccharide-lipid properly, and the alg9 mutant, accumulates Man(6)GlcNAc(2)-PP-Dol [2].
  • Here, we show that the dolichylphosphomannose-dependent ALG9 mannosyltransferase is the exception from this rule and is required for the addition of two different alpha-1,2-linked mannose residues to the LLO [3].
  • YGL142C predicts a highly hydrophobic integral membrane protein which by sequence is related to ALG9, a yeast gene required for adding Man in alpha1,2 linkage to N-glycans [4].
