Accepted name: α-1,6-mannosyl-glycoprotein 2-β-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase
Reaction: UDP-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine + 6-(α-D-mannosyl)-β-D-mannosyl-R = UDP + 6-(2-[N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminyl]-α-D-mannosyl)-β-D-mannosyl-R

Other name(s): N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase II; N-glycosyl-oligosaccharide-glycoprotein N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase II; acetylglucosaminyltransferase II; uridine diphosphoacetylglucosamine-mannoside α1→6-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; uridine diphosphoacetylglucosamine-α-1,6-mannosylglycoprotein β-1-2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; uridine diphosphoacetylglucosamine-α-D-mannoside β1-2-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; UDP-GlcNAc:mannoside α1-6 acetylglucosaminyltransferase; α-1,6-mannosyl-glycoprotein β-1,2-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase; GnTII
Systematic name: UDP-N-acetyl-D-glucosamine:6-(α-D-mannosyl)-β-D-mannosyl-glycoprotein 2-β-N-acetyl-D-glucosaminyltransferase
Comments: R represents the remainder of the N-linked oligosaccharide in the glycoprotein acceptor. Note that this enzyme acts after N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase I but before N-acetylglucosaminyltransferases III, IV, V and VI (click here for diagram).
