Mannose-specific lectin. May recognize sugar residues of glycoproteins, glycolipids, or glycosylphosphatidyl inositol anchors and may be involved in the sorting or recycling of proteins, lipids, or both. The LMAN1-MCFD2 complex forms a specific cargo receptor for the ER-to-Golgi transport of selected proteins.
Involvement in disease
Defects in LMAN1 are THE cause of factor V and factor VIII combined deficiency type 1 (F5F8D1) [MIM:227300]; also known as multiple coagulation factor deficiency I (MCFD1). F5F8D1 is an autosomal recessive blood coagulation disorder characterized by bleeding symptoms similar to those in hemophilia or parahemophilia, that are caused by single deficiency of FV or FVIII, respectively. The most common symptoms are epistaxis, menorrhagia, and excessive bleeding during or after trauma. Plasma levels of coagulation factors V and VIII are in the range of 5 to 30% of normal.
