Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to contribute to GTPase activator activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to amino acid starvation; negative regulation of TORC1 signaling; and positive regulation of autophagy. Located in cytosol and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in branchial arch; genitourinary system; limb; and peripheral nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in focal epilepsy. Orthologous to human DEPDC5 (DEP domain containing 5, GATOR1 subcomplex subunit).
