Previous GeneCards Identifiers for PSAPL1 Gene
This gene encodes a protein that is related to the glycoprotein prosaposin. Based on sequence similarity between the encoded protein and prosaposin, it is predicted that the encoded protein is a preproprotein that is proteolytically processed to generate multiple protein products. These predicted products include saposins A-like, B-like, C-like, and D-like, which may play a role in the lysosomal degradation of sphingolipids. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2015]
