XB-GENEPAGE-6462751
Gene Symbol:
ago3

Gene Name:
argonaute 3, RISC catalytic component

Synonyms:
Argonaute3 , argonaute 3 ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
Translation initiation factor 2C (eIF-2C) and related proteins

Protein Function :
Required for RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi). Binds to short RNAs such as microRNAs (miRNAs) and represses the translation of mRNAs which are complementary to them. Lacks endonuclease activity and d...[+]
