GPI-anchor transamidase activity

id: GO:0003923
name: GPI-anchor transamidase activity
namespace: molecular_function
type: go
obsolete: False

Description: Catalysis of the formation of the linkage between a protein and a glycosylphosphatidylinositol anchor. The reaction probably occurs by subjecting a peptide bond to nucleophilic attack by the amino group of ethanolamine-GPI, transferring the protein from a signal peptide to the GPI anchor.
