BackgroundVesicular integral-membrane protein VIP36 is also known as Glycoprotein GP36b, Lectin mannose-binding 2, Vesicular integral-membrane protein 36, LMAN2 and C5orf8. LMAN2 is widely expressed and contains one L-type lectin-like domain. LMAN2 binds high mannose type glycoproteins and may facilitate their sorting, trafficking and quality control. LMAN2 plays a role as an intracellular lectin in the early secretory pathway. LMAN2 interacts with N-acetyl-D-galactosamine and high-mannose type glycans and may also bind to O-linked glycans. LMAN2 is also involved in the transport and sorting of glycoproteins carrying high mannose-type glycans.
