24002165 Our report is the first to document an association between POMT2 mutations and aortopathy with concomitant depressed left ventricular systolic function.
21782786 the effects of replacing Arg(64), Glu(78) and Arg(138)residues in human POMT1 and POMT2 with Ala on complex formation and enzymatic activity were studied.
20816175 the function of the gene products is only known for POMT1, POMT2, and POMGnT1, all responsible for the O-mannosylglycan biosynthesis
19880378 the N-glycosylation of POMT1 and POMT2 is required for maintaining the conformation as well as the activity of the POMT1-POMT2 complex.
19299310 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19138766 POMT2 intragenic deletions and splicing abnormalities causing congenital muscular dystrophy with mental retardation are reported.
18804929 Our results indicate that mutations in POMT2 can cause a wide spectrum of clinical phenotypes as observed in other genes associated with alpha-dystroglycanopathy.
18513969 In pomt2 mutation in CMD patient(three out of 5) show cerebellar hypoplasia.
18513969 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18490429 testis POMT2 is highly conserved among mammals, including humans, suggesting a crucial function that is distinct from somatic POMT2
17923109 identified a POMT2 homozygous missense mutation in a girl with a mild limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) phenotype
17878207 Observational study of genotype prevalence. (HuGE Navigator)
17634419 Our results broaden the clinical spectrum associated with POMT2 mutations, which should be considered in patients with CMD associated with microcephaly, and severe mental retardation with or without ocular involvement.
16887026 Several mutations were found in the Protein O-Mannosyltransferase 1 and 2 (POMT1 and POMT2) genes, and one mutation was found in each of the fukutin and fukutin-related protein (FKRP) genes.
16698797 human protein O-mannosyltransferases 1 and 2 form heterocomplexes which possess protein O-mannosyltransferase activity
15894594 POMT2 mutations cause alpha-dystroglycan hypoglycosylation and Walker-Warburg syndrome [case reports]
14699049 active enzyme complex of POMT1 and POMT2 suggests that the regulation of protein O-mannosylation is complex and appears to be required for normal structure and function of alpha-dystroglycan in muscle and brain
