ⓘ PIGF

This gene encodes a protein that is involved in glycosylphosphatidylinositol GPI-anchor biosynthesis. The GPI-anchor is a glycolipid which contains three mannose molecules in its core backbone. The GPI-anchor is found on many blood cells and serves to anchor proteins to the cell surface. This protein and another GPI synthesis protein, PIGO, function in the transfer of ethanolaminephosphate EtNP to the third mannose in GPI. At least two alternatively spliced transcripts encoding distinct isoforms have been found for this gene.
