Summaries for GPLD1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GPLD1 Gene

  • Many proteins are tethered to the extracellular face of eukaryotic plasma membranes by a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI) anchor. The GPI-anchor is a glycolipid found on many blood cells. The protein encoded by this gene is a GPI degrading enzyme. Glycosylphosphatidylinositol specific phospholipase D1 hydrolyzes the inositol phosphate linkage in proteins anchored by phosphatidylinositol glycans, thereby releasing the attached protein from the plasma membrane. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for GPLD1 Gene

GPLD1 (Glycosylphosphatidylinositol Specific Phospholipase D1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are GPCR Pathway and Sweet Taste Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include sodium channel regulator activity and glycosylphosphatidylinositol phospholipase D activity.
