Gene Symbol POMK
Synonyms MDDGA12 | MDDGC12 | SGK196
Gene Description POMK, protein O-mannose kinase, is a carbohydrate kinase that phosphorylates O-mannose on alpha-dystroglycan, which enables glycan elongation and binding to extracellular matrix proteins including laminin (PMID: 23929950, PMID: 27879205).
