Summaries for EIF4A2 Gene

GeneCards Summary for EIF4A2 Gene

EIF4A2 (Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 4A2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Interferon gamma signaling and Translation Insulin regulation of translation. GO annotations related to this gene include nucleic acid binding and hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is EIF4A1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EIF4A2 Gene

  • ATP-dependent RNA helicase which is a subunit of the eIF4F complex involved in cap recognition and is required for mRNA binding to ribosome. In the current model of translation initiation, eIF4A unwinds RNA secondary structures in the 5-UTR of mRNAs which is necessary to allow efficient binding of the small ribosomal subunit, and subsequent scanning for the initiator codon.
