Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity and translation initiation factor activity. 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 be located in cytoplasm. Predicted to be part of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B complex and guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor complex. Is expressed in central nervous system; gonad; retina; and thyroid gland. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in leukoencephalopathy with vanishing white matter. Orthologous to human EIF2B3 (eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B subunit gamma).
