From NCBI Gene:

The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the DHHC palmitoyltransferase family. Mutations in this gene are associated with mental retardatio X-linked type 91 (MRX91). Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009]

From UniProt:

Palmitoyltransferase specific for GAP43 and DLG4/PSD95.

From NCBI Gene:

  • Mental retardation 91, X-linked

From UniProt:

Mental retardation, X-linked 91 (MRX91): A disorder characterized by significantly below average general intellectual functioning associated with impairments in adaptive behavior and manifested during the developmental period. Intellectual deficiency is the only primary symptom of non-syndromic X-linked mental retardation, while syndromic mental retardation presents with associated physical, neurological and/or psychiatric manifestations.
