Reversibly glycosylated polypeptide (IPR004901)

Short name: RGP

Overlapping homologous superfamilies

Family relationships


This family consists of previously named Reversibly Glycosylated Proteins (RGPs), which are plant-specific cytosolic proteins that tend to associate with the Golgi membranes and have been implicated in polysaccharide biosynthesis [PMID: 12011358, PMID: 20149347, PMID: 17182701, PMID: 20057139]. In Arabidopsis thaliana the RGP protein family consists of five closely related members, three of which have been identified as UDP-arabinopyranose mutases that catalyze the formation of UDP-L-arabinofuranose (UDP-Araf) from UDP-Larabinopyranose (UDP-Arap). This interconversion is essential for cell wall establishment and plant development [PMID: 21478444].
