This gene encodes a member of the ALG6/ALG8 glucosyltransferase family. The encoded protein catalyzes the addition of the second glucose residue to the lipid-linked oligosaccharide precursor for N-linked glycosylation of proteins. Mutations in this gene have been associated with congenital disorder of glycosylation type Ih (CDG-Ih). Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.

Adds the second glucose residue to the lipid-linked oligosaccharide precursor for N-linked glycosylation. Transfers glucose from dolichyl phosphate glucose (Dol-P-Glc) onto the lipid-linked oligosaccharide Glc(1)Man(9)GlcNAc(2)-PP-Dol before it is transferred to the nascent peptide (By similarity). Required for PKD1/Polycystin-1 maturation and localization to the plasma membrane of the primary cilia (By similarity).

- POLYCYSTIC LIVER DISEASE 3 WITH OR WITHOUT KIDNEY CYSTS
Congenital disorder of glycosylation 1H (CDG1H): A form of congenital disorder of glycosylation, a multisystem disorder caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterized by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins. Congenital disorders of glycosylation result in a wide variety of clinical features, such as defects in the nervous system development, psychomotor retardation, dysmorphic features, hypotonia, coagulation disorders, and immunodeficiency. The broad spectrum of features reflects the critical role of N-glycoproteins during embryonic development, differentiation, and maintenance of cell functions. [MIM:608104]
Polycystic liver disease 3 with or without kidney cysts (PCLD3): A form of polycystic liver disease, an autosomal dominant hepatobiliary disease characterized by overgrowth of biliary epithelium and supportive connective tissue, resulting in multiple liver cysts. PCLD3 patients may also develop kidney cysts that usually do not result in clinically significant renal disease. [MIM:617874]
