The following PIGK gene sequences were retrieved from the NCBI Reference Sequence Database (RefSeq). These sequences represent the protein coding region of the PIGK gene which is encoded by the open reading frame (ORF) sequence. ORF sequences can be delivered in our standard vector, pcDNA3.1+/C-(K)DYK or the vector of your choice as an expression/transfection-ready ORF clone. Not the clone you want?

Summary: This gene encodes a member of the cysteine protease family
C13 that is involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor
biosynthesis. The GPI-anchor is a glycolipid found on many blood
cells and serves to anchor proteins to the cell surface. This
protein is a member of the multisubunit enzyme, GPI transamidase
and is thought to be its enzymatic component. GPI transamidase
mediates GPI anchoring in the endoplasmic reticulum, by catalyzing
the transfer of fully assembled GPI units to proteins. [provided by
