From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the prolyl oligopeptidase subfamily of serine peptidases. Mutations in this gene have been associated with hypotonia-cystinuria syndrome, also known as the 2p21 deletion syndrome. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding either the same or different isoforms have been described for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

From UniProt:

Probable serine peptidase whose precise substrate specificity remains unclear. Does not cleave peptides after a arginine or lysine residue.

From UniProt:

Hypotonia-cystinuria syndrome (HCS): Characterized generalized hypotonia at birth, nephrolithiasis, growth hormone deficiency, minor facial dysmorphism, failure to thrive, followed by hyperphagia and rapid weight gain in late childhood. [MIM:606407]
