|Gene:||SEC59||Accession Number: G-5521 (MetaCyc)|
Synonyms: dolichol phosphokinase
Species: Saccharomyces cerevisiae
The product of gene SEC59 was computationally predicted to be highly hydrophobic and to contain two potential N-glycosylation sites [Bernstein89]. The product of gene SEC59 contains a 13-amino acid consensus sequence thought to be involved in dolichol recognition. This sequence is also found in the glycosyltransferase products of genes ALG1, ALG7, and DPM1 [Albright89].
Human dolichol kinase has been cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli and its topological arrangement as a membrane protein characterized [Shridas06]. In humans, mutations in the gene encoding dolichol kinase can cause a lethal metabolic disorder [Kranz07].
