Database IDHIV0002048
UniProt IDO15294
Primary gene name(s)OGT
Synonym gene name(s)unknown
Protein nameUDP-N-acetylglucosamine--peptide N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase 110 kDa subunit
Protein functionCatalyzes the transfer of a single N-acetylglucosamine from UDP-GlcNAc to a serine or threonine residue in cytoplasmic and nuclear proteins resulting in their modification with a beta-linked N-acetylglucosamine, O-GlcNAc. Glycosylates a large and diverse number of proteins including histone H2B, AKT1, EZH2, PFKL, KMT2E/MLL5, MAPT/TAU and HCFC1. Can regulate their cellular processes via cross-talk between glycosylation and phosphorylation or by affecting proteolytic processing. Involved in insulin resistance in muscle and adipocyte cells via glycosylating insulin signaling components and inhibiting the 'Thr-308' phosphorylation of AKT1, enhancing IRS1 phosphorylation and attenuating insulin signaling. Involved in glycolysis regulation by mediating glycosylation of 6-phosphofructokinase PFKL, inhibiting its activity, PubMed:22923583. Component of a THAP1/THAP3-HCFC1-OGT complex that is required for the regulation of the transcriptional activity of RRM1. Plays a key role in chromatin structure by mediating O-GlcNAcylation of 'Ser-112' of histone H2B: recruited to CpG-rich transcription start sites of active genes via its interaction with TET proteins, TET1, TET2 or TET3, PubMed:22121020, PubMed:23353889. As part of the NSL complex indirectly involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues, PubMed:20018852. O-GlcNAcylation of 'Ser-75' of EZH2 increases its stability, and facilitating the formation of H3K27me3 by the PRC2/EED-EZH2 complex, PubMed:24474760. Regulates circadian oscillation of the clock genes and glucose homeostasis in the liver. Stabilizes clock proteins ARNTL/BMAL1 and CLOCK through O-glycosylation, which prevents their ubiquitination and subsequent degradation. Promotes the CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1-mediated transcription of genes in the negative loop of the circadian clock such as PER1/2 and CRY1/2, PubMed:12150998, PubMed:18288188, PubMed:19377461, PubMed:19451179, PubMed:20018868, PubMed:20200153, PubMed:21285374, PubMed:15361863. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12150998, ECO:0000269|PubMed:15361863, ECO:0000269|PubMed:18288188, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19377461, ECO:0000269|PubMed:19451179, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20018852, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20018868, ECO:0000269|PubMed:20200153, ECO:0000269|PubMed:21285374, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22121020, ECO:0000269|PubMed:22923583, ECO:0000269|PubMed:23353889, ECO:0000269|PubMed:24474760}.; FUNCTION: Isoform 2: the mitochondrial isoform, mOGT is cytotoxic and triggers apoptosis in several cell types including INS1, an insulinoma cell line.
Subcellular locationIsoform 2: Mitochondrion. Membrane. Note=Associates with the mitochondrial inner membrane.;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 3: Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Cell membrane. Note=Mostly in the nucleus. Retained in the nucleus via interaction with HCFC1. After insulin induction, translocated from the nucleus to the cell membrane via phophatidylinisotide binding. Colocalizes with AKT1 at the plasma membrane.;
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Isoform 4: Cytoplasm. Nucleus.
