Reaction catalysed
UDP-N-acetyl-alpha-D-glucosamine + beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->2)-(beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->4)]-alpha-D-Man-(1->3)-(beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->2)-(beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->6))-alpha-D-Man-(1->6)]-beta-D-Man-(1->4)-beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->4)-beta-D-GlcNAc-N-Asn-[protein] <=> UDP + beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->2)-(beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->4))-alpha-D-Man-(1->3)-[beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->2)-[beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->4))-(beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->6))-alpha-D-Man-(1->6))-beta-D-Man-(1->4)-beta-D-GlcNAc-(1->4)-beta-D-GlcNAc-N-Asn-[protein]
Comment(s)
  • The enzyme, characterized from hen oviduct membranes, participates in the processing of N-glycans in the Golgi apparatus.
  • It transfers GlcNAc in beta-1-4 linkage to a D-mannose residue that already has GlcNAc residues attached at positions 2 and 6 by beta linkages.
  • No homologous enzyme appears to exist in mammals.
