Official Full Name
eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2C, 3
This gene encodes a member of the Argonaute family of proteins which play a role in RNA interference. The encoded;protein is highly basic, contains a PAZ domain and a PIWI domain, and may play a role in;short-interfering-RNA-mediated gene silencing. This gene is located on chromosome 1 in a tandem cluster of closely;related family members including argonaute 4 and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2C, 1. Two transcript;variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene.
