DHX29 (DEAH-Box Helicase 29) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and helicase activity. An important paralog of this gene is DHX36.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for DHX29 Gene
ATP-binding RNA helicase involved in translation initiation. Part of the 43S preinitiation complex that is required for efficient initiation on mammalian mRNAs with structured 5-UTRs by promoting efficient NTPase-dependent 48S complex formation. Specifically binds to the 40S ribosome near the mRNA entrance. Does not possess a processive helicase activity.
