Other name(s): GTDC2 (gene name); POMGNT2
Systematic name: UDP-N-acetyl-α-D-glucosamine:α-D-mannosyl-threonyl-[protein] 4-β-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminyltransferase
Comments: The human protein is involved in the formation of a phosphorylated trisaccharide on a threonine residue of α-dystroglycan, an extracellular peripheral glycoprotein that acts as a receptor for extracellular matrix proteins containing laminin-G domains.
