N-Acetylglucosaminyltransferase V (GnT-V), also known as mannosylglycoprotein N-acetyl-glucosaminyltransferase 5 (MGAT5), adds an N-acetylglucosamine to the alpha 1-6-linked core mannose of an N-linked oligosaccharide in the Golgi apparatus (1). This reaction is the committing step for the biosynthesis of beta 1-6GlcNAc-branched arm in N-glycans. The degree of N-glycan branching has been shown to regulate cell proliferation and differentiation (2). An increase in the GnT-V activity and its glycan products is also known to positively correlate with the progression of invasive malignancies (3, 4). For example, ectopic expression of GnT-V in epithelial cells results in morphological transformation and tumor growth in mice and overexpression in carcinoma cells has been shown to induce metastatic spread (3-5).
