Alpha-1, 6-mannosyl-glycoprotein 2-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase, MGAT2, CDG2A, CDGS2, GLCNACTII, GNT-II, GNT2, Beta-1,2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase II, GlcNAc-T II, Mannoside acetylglucosaminyltransferase 2, N-glycosyl-oligosaccharide-glycoprotein N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase II.
MGAT2 is an enzyme which takes part in the catalyzation of a crucial step in the reaction of oligomannose which converts to complex N-glycans. MGAT2 has three domains, classic to glycosyltransferase: short N-terminal cytoplasmic domain, a C-terminal catalytic domain and hydrophobic non-cleavable signal-anchor domain. The enzyme MGAT2 is encoded by the MGAT2 gene in humans. There are no introns in the DNA coding the gene, therefore mutations in the MGAT2 will result in carbohydrate-deficient glycoprotein syndrome, type II.
MGAT2 produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 427 amino acids (30-447a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 49.3kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 40-57kDa).
MGAT2 is expressed with a 6 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
