EDEM2_HUMAN Protein

Name ER degradation-enhancing alpha-mannosidase-like protein 2
Description Initiates the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) that targets misfolded glycoproteins for degradation in an N-glycan-dependent manner. Catalyzes the first mannose trimming step, from Man9GlcNAc2 to Man8GlcNAc2 (PubMed:25092655). Extracts misfolded glycoproteins, but not glycoproteins undergoing productive folding, from the calnexin cycle.
