Summary
Enables acetylcholine receptor regulator activity; protein prenyltransferase activity; and receptor tyrosine kinase binding activity. Acts upstream of or within neurotransmitter receptor metabolic process. Predicted to be part of CAAX-protein geranylgeranyltransferase complex; microtubule associated complex; and protein farnesyltransferase complex. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; alimentary system; brain; hemolymphoid system gland; and reproductive system. Orthologous to human FNTA (farnesyltransferase, CAAX box, alpha). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
