phosphatidylinositol glycan anchor biosynthesis, class Q
This gene is involved in the first step in glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor biosynthesis. The GPI-anchor is a glycolipid found on many blood cells and serves to anchor proteins to the cell surface. This gene encodes a N-acetylglucosaminyl transferase component that is part of the complex that catalyzes transfer of N-acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) from UDP-GlcNAc to phosphatidylinositol (PI).

PIGQ involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways PIGQ participated on our site, such as Glycosylphosphatidylinositol(GPI)-anchor biosynthesis, Metabolic pathways, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with PIGQ were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
PIGQ has several biochemical functions, for example, contributes_to phosphatidylinositol N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by PIGQ itself.
