Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable eukaryotic initiation factor 4E binding activity; nucleic acid binding activity; and ribosomal small subunit binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including TORC1 signaling; cellular response to rapamycin; and posttranscriptional regulation of gene expression. Predicted to act upstream of or within regulation of translation. Predicted to be located in cytoplasmic stress granule. Predicted to be part of TORC1 complex and polysome. Predicted to colocalize with polysomal ribosome. Is expressed in several structures, including branchial arch; cranial ganglion; epithelium; future spinal cord; and limb bud. Orthologous to human LARP1 (La ribonucleoprotein 1, translational regulator).
