MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of a family of kinases that phosphorylate the alpha subunit of eukaryotic translation initiation factor-2 (EIF2), resulting in the downregulaton of protein synthesis. The encoded protein responds to amino acid deprivation by binding uncharged transfer RNAs. It may also be activated by glucose deprivation and viral infection. Mutations in this gene have been found in individuals suffering from autosomal recessive pulmonary venoocclusive-disease-2. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2014]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a null allele have altered feeding behavior, synaptic plasticity and dendritic cell function. Homozygotes for another null allele show enhanced muscle loss and morbidity after amino acid deprivation. Homozygotes for an ENU-induced allele show higher susceptibility to viral infection.
