Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ICMT Gene
This gene encodes the third of three enzymes that posttranslationally modify isoprenylated C-terminal cysteine residues in certain proteins and target those proteins to the cell membrane. This enzyme localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum. Alternative splicing may result in other transcript variants, but the biological validity of those transcripts has not been determined.

GeneCards Summary for ICMT Gene
ICMT (Isoprenylcysteine Carboxyl Methyltransferase) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ICMT include Hallermann-Streiff Syndrome and Homocysteinemia. Among its related pathways are Gamma carboxylation, hypusine formation and arylsulfatase activation and Terpenoid backbone biosynthesis. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cAMP response element binding protein binding and protein C-terminal S-isoprenylcysteine carboxyl O-methyltransferase activity.
