Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to be involved in several processes, including regulation of neurotransmitter receptor localization to postsynaptic specialization membrane; regulation of presynapse assembly; and synaptic membrane adhesion. Localizes to the synapse. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in omodysplasia. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; embryo mesenchyme; nervous system; otocyst; and primitive streak. Orthologous to human GPC6 (glypican 6).
