Summaries for EIF2S3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for EIF2S3 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is the largest subunit of a heterotrimeric GTP-binding protein involved in the recruitment of methionyl-tRNA(i) to the 40 S ribosomal subunit. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

GeneCards Summary for EIF2S3 Gene

EIF2S3 (Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 2, Subunit 3 Gamma, 52kDa) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts and Nanog in Mammalian ESC Pluripotency. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and translation initiation factor activity. An important paralog of this gene is LOC255308.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EIF2S3 Gene

  • eIF-2 functions in the early steps of protein synthesis by forming a ternary complex with GTP and initiator tRNA. This complex binds to a 40S ribosomal subunit, followed by mRNA binding to form a 43S preinitiation complex. Junction of the 60S ribosomal subunit to form the 80S initiation complex is preceded by hydrolysis of the GTP bound to eIF-2 and release of an eIF-2-GDP binary complex. In order for eIF-2 to recycle and catalyze another round of initiation, the GDP bound to eIF-2 must exchange with GTP by way of a reaction catalyzed by eIF-2B
