FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a glycosylphosphatidylinositol-anchored cell membrane glycoprotein. In addition to being highly expressed in the prostate it is also expressed in the bladder, placenta, colon, kidney, and stomach. This gene is up-regulated in a large proportion of prostate cancers and is also detected in cancers of the bladder and pancreas. This gene includes a polymorphism that results in an upstream start codon in some individuals; this polymorphism is thought to be associated with a risk for certain gastric and bladder cancers. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null mice are viable and fertile and show no significant differences in spontaneous or radiation-induced primary epithelial tumor formation relative to wild-type littermates. [provided by MGI curators]
