  • FunctionCatalyzes the addition of N-acetylglucosamine in beta 1-6 linkage to the alpha-linked mannose of biantennary N-linked oligosaccharides. It is one of the most important enzymes involved in the regulation of the biosynthesis of glycoprotein oligosaccharides.
  • PathwayProtein modification; protein glycosylation.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the glycosyltransferase 18 family.
  • Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus membrane.
