PIGW [ENSP00000482202]

Phosphatidylinositol glycan anchor biosynthesis, class W; Required for the transport of GPI-anchored proteins to the plasma membrane. Probable acetyltransferase, which acetylates the inositol ring of phosphatidylinositol during biosynthesis of GPI-anchor. Acetylation during GPI-anchor biosynthesis is not essential for the subsequent mannosylation and is usually removed soon after the attachment of GPIs to proteins (By similarity); Belongs to the PIGW family.
