Posttranslational glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)anchor attachment serves as a general mechanism for linkingproteins to the cell surface membrane. The protein encoded by thisgene presumably functions in GPI anchoring at the GPI transferstep. The mRNA transcript is ubiquitously expressed in both fetaland adult tissues. The anchor attachment protein 1 contains anN-terminal signal sequence, 1 cAMP- and cGMP-dependent proteinkinase phosphorylation site, 1 leucine zipper pattern, 2 potentialN-glycosylation sites, and 8 putative transmembrane domains.
