|Other Names||Alpha-1, 3-mannosyl-glycoprotein 2-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase, N-glycosyl-oligosaccharide-glycoprotein N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I, GNT-I, GlcNAc-T I, MGAT1, GGNT1, GLCT1, GLYT1, MGAT|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2406a was selected from the N-term region of human MGAT1 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GGNT1, GLCT1, GLYT1, MGAT|
|Function||Initiates complex N-linked carbohydrate formation. Essential for the conversion of high-mannose to hybrid and complex N-glycans.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Appears to be present in all tissues.|

There are believed to be over 100 different glycosyltransferases involved in the synthesis of protein-bound and lipid-bound oligosaccharides. MGAT1 (UDP-N-acetylglucosamine:alpha-3-D-mannoside beta-1,2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I) is a medial-Golgi enzyme essential for the synthesis of hybrid and complex N-glycans. The protein, encoded by a single exon, shows typical features of a type II transmembrane protein. The protein is believed to be essential for normal embryogenesis.
