Official Full Name
phosphatidylinositol glycan anchor biosynthesis, class S
This gene encodes a protein that is involved in GPI-anchor biosynthesis. The glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor;is a glycolipid found on many blood cells and serves to anchor proteins to the cell surface. This gene encodes an;essential component of the multisubunit enzyme, GPI transamidase. GPI transamidase mediates GPI anchoring in the;endoplasmic reticulum, by catalyzing the transfer of fully assembled GPI units to proteins.
