NGLY1: A fascinating, multifunctional molecule

NGLY1, a cytoplasmic de-N-glycosylating enzyme is well conserved among eukaryotes. This enzyme has attracted considerable attention after mutations on the NGLY1 gene were found to cause a rare genetic disorder called NGLY1 deficiency. Recent explosive progress in NGLY1 research has revealed multi-functional aspects of this protein.
