Summaries for EIF1AY Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EIF1AY Gene

  • This gene is located on the non-recombining region of the Y chromosome. It encodes a protein related to eukaryotic translation initiation factor 1A (EIF1A), which may function in stabilizing the binding of the initiator Met-tRNA to 40S ribosomal subunits. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2013]

GeneCards Summary for EIF1AY Gene

EIF1AY (Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 1A, Y-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are RNA transport and Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts. GO annotations related to this gene include RNA binding and translation initiation factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is EIF1AX.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EIF1AY Gene

  • Seems to be required for maximal rate of protein biosynthesis. Enhances ribosome dissociation into subunits and stabilizes the binding of the initiator Met-tRNA(I) to 40 S ribosomal subunits (By similarity).
