Previous GeneCards Identifiers for MRRF Gene
This gene encodes a ribosome recycling factor, which is a component of the mitochondrial translational machinery. The encoded protein, along with mitochondrial elongation factor 2, functions in ribosomal recycling at the termination of mitochondrial translation by mediating the disassembly of ribosomes from messenger RNA. A pseudogene of this gene has been identified on chromosome X. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2016]
GeneCards Summary for MRRF Gene
MRRF (Mitochondrial Ribosome Recycling Factor) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MRRF include Epidemic Typhus and Uremic Neuropathy. Among its related pathways are Mitochondrial translation and Organelle biogenesis and maintenance.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MRRF Gene
Responsible for the release of ribosomes from messenger RNA at the termination of protein biosynthesis. May increase the efficiency of translation by recycling ribosomes from one round of translation to another (By similarity).
