Gene Symbol: tacc3

Gene Name: transforming acidic coiled-coil containing protein 3

Synonyms: maskin , xmaskin , eric1 ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function: Projectin/twitchin and related proteins

Protein Function :
Maternal RNA in oocytes remains in a dormant state as masking outcompetes eif4g to bind eif4e, thereby preventing translation. During oocyte maturation this complex dissolves and eif4g binds eif4e to a...[+]
