39) Hong in our laboratory identified one of the mammalian GPI7 homologs, termed PIGN, and demonstrated that PIGN is required for the transfer of an EtNP side branch to Man1 by generating PIGN-knockout murine F9 cells.
Hong characterized the second mammalian homolog of yeast GPI7, termed PIGO, knocked it out in murine F9 cells, and found that PIGO is required for transfer to Man3 of EtNP that acts to link GPI to proteins.
Shishioh in our laboratory identified a mammalian ortholog of GPI7, now termed PIGG, and confirmed that PIGG is involved in the transfer of EtNP to Man2.
