Asparagine-linked glycosylation 8, alpha-1,3-glucosyltransferase homolog

ALG8, Alg8p
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.

New
Khan et al., Bangkok, Thailand. In J Hazard Mater, Jul 2015
Extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) levels, measured using crystal violet and total carbohydrate assays, and expression of the EPS-associated genes, csgA and alg8, supported the conclusion that biofilms at later stages were older than those at earlier stages.
ALG8-CDG: novel patients and review of the literature.
Review
Karall et al., Innsbruck, Austria. In Orphanet J Rare Dis, 2014
ALG8-CDG (= CDG-Ih) is one of the less frequently reported types of CDG, maybe due to its severe multi-organ involvement with coagulation disturbances, edema, massive gastrointestinal protein loosing enteropathy, cataracts, and often early death.

Review
Jaeken et al., Catania, Italy. In Semin Neurol, 2014
It has also been reported in some patients with ALG1-CDG, ALG3-CDG, ALG9-CDG, ALG6-CDG, ALG8-CDG, PIGA-CDG, DPM1-CDG, DPM2-CDG, B4GALT1-CDG, SLC35A2-CDG, COG1-CDG, COG5-CDG, COG7-CDG, and COG8-CDG.

Furthermore, expression of alg8 is shown to be influenced by spf, suggesting that this ncRNA plays a role in alginate biosynthesis.

Review
Morava et al., In Pediatr Dermatol, 2014
ALG8-CDG is a severe disorder characterized by dysmorphic features, failure to thrive, protein-losing enteropathy, neurologic and ophthalmologic problems, and developmental delay.

Galindo et al., Ecatepec, Mexico. In Enzyme Microb Technol, 2013
In cultures at low DOT (1%), in which a high molecular weight alginate (1200 kDa) was synthesized, the transcription levels of alg8 and alg44 (genes encoding alginate polymerase complex), and algX (encoding a protein involved in polymer transport through periplasmic space) were considerably higher as compared to cultures conducted at 5% DOT, under which an alginate with a low MW (42 kDa) was produced.

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of agitation rate and inlet sucrose concentrations (ISC) on alginate production and the expression of the genes encoding for alginate-lyases (algL) and the catalytic subunit of the alginate polymerase complex (alg8) in chemostat cultures of Azotobacter vinelandii ATCC 9046.

Review

One of them, ALG8 deficiency (CDG Ih), leads to protein N-glycosylation defects caused by malfunction of glucosyltransferase 2 (Dol-P-Glc:Glc1-Man(9)-GlcNAc(2)-P-P-Dol glucosyltransferase) resulting in inefficient addition of the second glucose residue onto lipid-linked oligosaccharides.
