Entrez Gene Summary for EIF1AX Gene

  • This gene encodes an essential eukaryotic translation initiation factor. The protein is required for the binding of the 43S complex (a 40S subunit, eIF2/GTP/Met-tRNAi and eIF3) to the 5' end of capped RNA. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for EIF1AX Gene

EIF1AX (Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 1A, X-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts and Biosynthesis of the N-glycan precursor (dolichol lipid-linked oligosaccharide, LLO) and transfer to a nascent protein. GO annotations related to this gene include translation initiation factor activity and translation factor activity, RNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is EIF1AY.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EIF1AX 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
