Function Glycosyltransferase involved in the biosynthesis of the phosphorylated O-mannosyl trisaccharide (N-acetylgalactosamine-beta-3-N-acetylglucosamine-beta-4-(phosphate-6-)mannose), a carbohydrate structure present in alpha-dystroglycan (DAG1), which is required for binding laminin G-like domain-containing extracellular proteins with high affinity. May interact with and reinforce a large complex encompassing the outside and inside of muscle membranes. Could be involved in brain development.
Involvement in disease Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital with brain and eye anomalies A4 (MDDGA4); Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy congenital without mental retardation B4 (MDDGB4); Muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy limb-girdle C4 (MDDGC4); Cardiomyopathy, dilated 1X (CMD1X)
Subcellular Location Golgi apparatus membrane, Single-pass type II membrane protein
Protein Families LicD transferase family
Tissue Specificity Widely expressed with highest expression in brain, heart, pancreas and skeletal muscle. Expressed at similar levels in control fetal and adult brain, but is much reduced in Fukuyama-type congenital dystrophy (FCMD) brains. Expressed in migrating neurons,
