Overview 
Unknown. The presence of the putative catalytic domain of S-adenosyl-L-methionine binding argues for a methyltransferase activity.

Note 
The gene coding for this protein is located in the pseudoautosomal region 1 (PAR1) of X and Y chromosomes. It represents a unique fusion product of 2 different genes of different evolutionary origin and function. The N-terminus is homologous to the bacterial maf/orfE genes and the C-terminus is homologous to ASMT. Exon duplication, exon shuffling and gene fusion seem to be common characteristics of the PAR1 region.
