MetaCyc Enzyme: chitobiosyldiphosphodolichol β-mannosyltransferase

Gene: ALG1 Accession Number: G-5561 (MetaCyc)

Synonyms: GDP-mannose: dolichyl diphosphate chitobiose mannosyl transferase

Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Residues 8-24 of the protein contain hydrophobic amino acids, and this region is predicted to form a signal sequence and membrane spanning domain [Albright90]. This region also contains a 13-amino acid consensus sequence thought to be involved in dolichol recognition. This 13-amino acid sequence is also found in the glycosyltransferase products of genes ALG7 and DPM1, and the product of gene SEC59 [Albright89].
ALG1 mutants accumulated (N-acetylglucosaminyl)2-diphosphodolichol [Huffaker83].
