Exhibits several functions, including chaperone binding activity; misfolded protein binding activity; and protein kinase inhibitor activity. Involved in cellular response to cold; proteolysis involved in cellular protein catabolic process; and regulation of translational initiation. Localizes to the cytosol and endoplasmic reticulum lumen. Orthologous to human DNAJC3 (DnaJ heat shock protein family (Hsp40) member C3).
