Could be involved in cell-cell interactions. Defects in GPR56 are the cause of bilateral frontoparietal polymicrogyria (BFPP). BFPP is characterized by disorganized cortical lamination that is most severe in frontal cortex. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 2 family. LN-TM7 subfamily. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
