Alpha-1,6-mannosyl-glycoprotein 2-beta-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (MGAT2) normally catalyses the transfer of a GlcNAc moiety onto the alpha-1,6 mannose of an alpha-1,4 branch of oligomannose N-glycans to form complex N-glycans (Tan et al. 1995). Defects in MGAT2 are associated with congenital disorder of glycosylation type IIa (MGAT2-CDG, CDG-2a; MIM:212066), a multisystem disorder caused by a defect in glycoprotein biosynthesis and characterised by under-glycosylated serum glycoproteins (Tan et al. 1996, Cormier-Daire et al. 2000, Alkuraya 2010, Alazami et al. 2012). Type II CDGs refer to defects in the trimming and processing of protein-bound glycans.
