Alpha-mannosidases I(ERMan1) is a human protein that resides in the endoplasmic reticulum(ER). ERMan1 is a member of the class 1 glycosylhydrolase family 47 group proteins and sports a Tim-barrel fold. Asparagine(N)-linked glycans are common covalent modifiers in the ER that aid in protein folding and trafficking. ERMan1 trims N-linked glycans to target a misfolded protein for degradation. The slow acting kinetics of ERMan1 have been proposed to act as a timer for protein degradation, creating a discrete window for protein folding followed by degradation if the substrate protein cannot reach the native state.
