Description

This entry represents GPI mannosyltransferase 2, also known as PIG-V in humans or Gpi18 in fungi. PIG-V is a mannosyltransferase that transfers the second mannose in glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) biosynthesis [PMID: 15623507, PMID: 15720390, PMID: 17615295]. GPI is a glycolipid that anchors many proteins to the eukaryotic cell surface [PMID: 15623507].
