Literature associating MGAT5B and Walker-Warburg syndrome
Mannosyl (alpha-1,6-)-glycoprotein beta-1,6-N-acetyl-glucosaminyltransferase, isozyme B; Glycosyltransferase that acts on alpha-linked mannose of N-glycans and O-mannosyl glycans. Catalyzes the transfer of N- acetylglucosamine (GlcNAc) to the beta 1-6 linkage of the mannose residue of GlcNAcbeta1,2-Manalpha on both the alpha1,3- and alpha1,6-linked mannose arms in the core structure of N-glycan. Also acts on the GlcNAcbeta1,2-Manalpha1-Ser/Thr moiety, forming a 2,6-branched structure in brain O-mannosyl glycan. Plays an active role in modulating integrin and laminin-dependent adhesion and migration of neuronal cells via its activity in the O-mannosyl glycan pathway; Mannosyl-glycoprotein N-acetylglucosaminyltransferases
