Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.1)
Predicted to enable several functions, including molybdopterin adenylyltransferase activity; molybdopterin cofactor binding activity; and molybdopterin molybdotransferase activity. Involved in neurotransmitter receptor localization to postsynaptic specialization membrane. Acts upstream of or within Mo-molybdopterin cofactor biosynthetic process; postsynaptic neurotransmitter receptor diffusion trapping; and synapse organization. Located in several cellular components, including GABA-ergic synapse; inhibitory synapse; and postsynaptic density. Is anchored component of synaptic membrane. Is active in postsynaptic specialization, intracellular component. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in inherited metabolic disorder and molybdenum cofactor deficiency type C. Orthologous to human GPHN (gephyrin).
