UDP-N-acetylglucosamine transferase subunit Alg13-like (IPR039042)

Short name: Alg13-like

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



Alg13 is the catalytic component of UDP-GlcNAc transferase essential for the second step of the dolichol-linked oligosaccharide pathway. The UDP-GlcNAc transferase complex consists of Alg13 and Alg14, Alg14 being a membrane-spanning subunit required to recruit Alg13 to the cytosolic face of the ER [PMID: 16100110]. Alg13 has homology to the C-terminal domain of the bacterial glycosyltransferase Murg [PMID: 15615718].
