Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables ribosome binding activity. Involved in embryo development; regulation of protein kinase B signaling; and regulation of protein phosphorylation. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including positive regulation of actin filament polymerization; regulation of GTPase activity; and regulation of protein phosphorylation. Part of TORC2 complex. Is expressed in early conceptus and oocyte. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast ductal carcinoma; gastrointestinal system cancer (multiple); and lung cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human RICTOR (RPTOR independent companion of MTOR complex 2).
