EDEM3(redirected from ER degradation-enhancing –mannosidase-like protein 3)
EDEM3A gene on chromosome 1q25 that encodes an enzyme which accelerates endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD), extracting misfolded—but not productively folded—glycoproteins from the calnexin cycle and targeting them for degradation by proteasomes. It is thought to have mannosidase activity.
