PHYSICAL PROPERTIES
STRUCTURE
motifs/domains
  • N-terminal signal peptide of 23 AAs is removed in the ER, and then dimerization and glycosylation of the two precursor peptides occur (Saito 2008)
  • conjugated GlycoP
    mono polymer heteromer , tetramer
    isoforms Precursor inactive AGA precursor consisting of 346 amino acid residues on endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-bound ribosomes (Saito 2008)
    HOMOLOGY

    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in the catabolism of N-linked oligosaccharides of glycoproteins
  • cleaving asparagine from N-acetylglucosamines as one of the final steps in the lysosomal breakdown of glycoproteins
  • CELLULAR PROCESS protein, degradation
