GeneCards Summary for EFL1 Gene
EFL1 (Elongation Factor Like GTPase 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EFL1 include Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome 2 and Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Ribosome biogenesis in eukaryotes.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EFL1 Gene
Involved in the biogenesis of the 60S ribosomal subunit and translational activation of ribosomes. Together with SBDS, triggers the GTP-dependent release of EIF6 from 60S pre-ribosomes in the cytoplasm, thereby activating ribosomes for translation competence by allowing 80S ribosome assembly and facilitating EIF6 recycling to the nucleus, where it is required for 60S rRNA processing and nuclear export. Has low intrinsic GTPase activity. GTPase activity is increased by contact with 60S ribosome subunits.
