Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to contribute to translation factor activity, RNA binding. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including T cell receptor signaling pathway; cytoplasmic translational initiation; and oligodendrocyte development. Predicted to localize to eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B complex and guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor complex. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in leukoencephalopathy with vanishing white matter. Orthologous to human EIF2B3 (eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B subunit gamma).
