FUNCTION: The protein encoded by this gene, in combination with autophagy protein 12, functions as an E1-like activating enzyme in a ubiquitin-like conjugating system. The encoded protein is involved in several cellular processes, including autophagic vesicle formation, mitochondrial quality control after oxidative damage, negative regulation of the innate antiviral immune response, lymphocyte development and proliferation, MHC II antigen presentation, adipocyte differentiation, and apoptosis. Two transcript variants encoding different protein isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2015]
PHENOTYPE: Mutation of this gene results in impaired autophagy due to absence of autolysosomes. Homozygotes die within 1 day of birth, have shorter survival times and reduced amino acid levels under fasting conditions. Homozygotes for a gene trap insertion mutationin this gene show no abnormal phenotype. [provided by MGI curators]
