GeneCards Summary for EIF3H Gene
EIF3H (Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 3 Subunit H) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EIF3H include Trichorhinophalangeal Syndrome, Type I and Trichorhinophalangeal Syndrome, Type Ii. Among its related pathways are Viral mRNA Translation and Translational Control. GO annotations related to this gene include poly(A) RNA binding and translation initiation factor activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EIF3H Gene
Component of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 (eIF-3) complex, which is required for several steps in the initiation of protein synthesis (PubMed:17581632, PubMed:25849773, PubMed:27462815). The eIF-3 complex associates with the 40S ribosome and facilitates the recruitment of eIF-1, eIF-1A, eIF-2:GTP:methionyl-tRNAi and eIF-5 to form the 43S pre-initiation complex (43S PIC). The eIF-3 complex stimulates mRNA recruitment to the 43S PIC and scanning of the mRNA for AUG recognition. The eIF-3 complex is also required for disassembly and recycling of post-termination ribosomal complexes and subsequently prevents premature joining of the 40S and 60S ribosomal subunits prior to initiation (PubMed:17581632). The eIF-3 complex specifically targets and initiates translation of a subset of mRNAs involved in cell proliferation, including cell cycling, differentiation and apoptosis, and uses different modes of RNA stem-loop binding to exert either translational activation or repression (PubMed:25849773).
