Gene : EIF2AK3 Homo sapiens

Name  ? eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 alpha kinase 3 Cytological Location  2p11.2
Brief Description  eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 alpha kinase 3
Description  The protein encoded by this gene phosphorylates the alpha subunit of eukaryotic translation-initiation factor 2, leading to its inactivation, and thus to a rapid reduction of translational initiation and repression of global protein synthesis. This protein is thought to modulate mitochondrial function. It is a type I membrane protein located in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), where it is induced by ER stress caused by malfolded proteins. Mutations in this gene are associated with Wolcott-Rallison syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]
