This gene encodes a protein that is involved inglycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)-anchor biosynthesis. TheGPI-anchor is a glycolipid found on many blood cells and serves toanchor proteins to the cell surface. This protein is an essentialcomponent of the multisubunit enzyme, GPI transamidase. GPItransamidase mediates GPI anchoring in the endoplasmic reticulum,by catalyzing the transfer of fully assembled GPI units toproteins. Several transcript variants encoding different isoformshave been found for this gene.
