Promotes neurite formation. Cooperates with PRDX1 to drive postmitotic motor neuron differentiation. The glycerophosphodiester phosphodiesterase activity may be required for its role in neuronal differentiation. May contribute to the osmotic regulation of cellular glycerophosphocholine.
Belongs to the glycerophosphoryl diester phosphodiesterase family. Contains 1 GDPD domain.
Intramolecular disulfide bond between Cys-25 and Cys-571 is reduced by PRDX1.
Endomembrane system. Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. Cell projection > growth cone. In a punctate perinuclear pattern.
