Predicted to have guanylate kinase activity and protein domain specific binding activity. Involved in peripheral nervous system myelin maintenance and protein localization to myelin sheath abaxonal region. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schmidt-Lanterman incisure; lateral loop; and myelin sheath adaxonal region. Used to study Leber congenital amaurosis. Is expressed in several structures, including early conceptus; eye; and future spinal cord neural plate. Orthologous to human MPP5 (membrane palmitoylated protein 5).
