Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of TORC1 signaling; pigmentation; and regulation of superoxide dismutase activity. Localizes to the peroxisome. Predicted to colocalize with the GATOR1 complex and GATOR2 complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 18. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; heart; lung; metanephros; and spleen. Orthologous to human SZT2 (SZT2 subunit of KICSTOR complex).
