A new class EC 7, Translocases, has been added to the EC list. It will be part of ENZYME from release 2018_10. Read more about EC 7 here.

ENZYME entry: EC

Accepted Name
Dolichyl-phosphooligosaccharide-protein glycotransferase.
Alternative Name(s)
Archaeal oligosaccharyl transferase.
Dolichyl-monophosphooligosaccharide-protein glycotransferase.
Reaction catalysed
An archaeal dolichyl phosphooligosaccharide + [protein]-L-asparagine <=> an archaeal dolichyl phosphate + a glycoprotein with the oligosaccharide chain attached by N-beta-D-glycosyl linkage to a protein L-asparagine
  • The enzyme, characterized from the archaea Methanococcus voltae and Haloferax volcanii, transfers a glycan component from dolichyl phosphooligosaccharide to external proteins.
  • It is different from EC which uses dolichyl diphosphate as carrier compound in bacteria and eukaryotes.
  • The enzyme participates in the N-glycosylation of proteins in some archaea.
  • Dolichol used by archaea is different from that used by eukaryotes; it is much shorter (C(55)-C(60)), it is alpha,omega-saturated and it may have additional unsaturated positions in the chain.
