ALG13 (Asparagine-Linked Glycosylation 13): ALG13 is a gene encoding a subunit of the UDP-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase complex, involved in the early stages of glycosylation. Glycosylation is a critical post-translational modification process where carbohydrates are attached to proteins or lipids, affecting their folding, stability, and function. ALG13 plays a crucial role in the biosynthesis of the glycan precursor, essential for proper protein glycosylation in the endoplasmic reticulum. Mutations in the ALG13 gene have been linked to congenital disorders of glycosylation, which can result in a wide range of clinical symptoms, including developmental delay, epilepsy, and metabolic abnormalities. This highlights the gene's importance in...
