ENZYME entry: EC 2.4.1.198

Accepted Name
Phosphatidylinositol N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
UDP-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine:phosphatidylinositol N-acetyl-D- glucosaminyltransferase.
Uridine diphosphoacetylglucosamine alpha-1,6-acetyl-D- glucosaminyltransferase.
Reaction catalysed
UDP-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine + 1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol <=> UDP + 6-(N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosaminyl)-1-phosphatidyl-1D-myo-inositol
Comment(s)
  • Involved in the first step of glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor formation in all eukaryotes.
  • In mammalian cells, the enzyme is composed of at least five subunits (PIG-A, PIG-H, PIG-C, GPI1 and PIG-P).
  • PIG-A subunit is the catalytic subunit.
  • In some species, the long-chain acyl groups of the phosphatidyl group are partly replaced by long-chain alkyl or alk-1-enyl groups.
