FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a four transmembrane protein that is a member of the zinc finger DHHC domain-containing protein family. The encoded protein may function as a palmitoyltransferase. Defects in this gene may be associated with a susceptibility to schizophrenia. Alternate splicing of this gene results in multiple transcript variants. A pseudogene of this gene is found on chromosome 22.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous null females display impaired prepulse inhibition and reduced exploration in new environments. Homozygous null males display normal prepulse inhibition and only a slight decrease in exploration. [provided by MGI curators]
