Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Enables 14-3-3 protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including anoikis; chemical synaptic transmission; and negative regulation of TORC1 signaling. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including intracellular protein transport; intracellular signal transduction; and negative regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Located in cytoplasm. Is active in synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including aorta; central nervous system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and retina. Used to study autism spectrum disorder; tuberous sclerosis; and uterine fibroid. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hepatic angiomyolipoma; lymphangioleiomyomatosis; medulloblastoma; tuberous sclerosis; and tuberous sclerosis 2. Orthologous to human TSC2 (TSC complex subunit 2).
