Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to contribute to GTPase activator activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to amino acid starvation; negative regulation of TORC1 signaling; and regulation of autophagy. Localizes to cytosol and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Predicted to colocalize with Cul3-RING ubiquitin ligase complex. Is expressed in branchial arch; genital tubercle; and limb. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in focal epilepsy. Orthologous to human DEPDC5 (DEP domain containing 5, GATOR1 subcomplex subunit).
