Ontology Information
PRO ID GO:0042765 Show OBO stanza
PRO name GPI-anchor transamidase complex
Other: EXACT: GPIT complex
Definition An enzyme complex which in humans and yeast consists of at least five proteins; for example, the complex contains GAA1, GPI8, PIG-S, PIG-U, and PIG-T in human, and Gaa1p, Gab1p, Gpi8p, Gpi16p, and Gpi17p in yeast. Catalyzes the posttranslational attachment of the carboxy-terminus of a precursor protein to a GPI-anchor. [GOC:jl, GOC:rb, PMID:12802054]
Comment Note that this term should not be confused with 'glycosylphosphatidylinositol-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (GPI-GnT) complex ; GO:0000506', which represents a distinct complex with a different catalytic activity.
