Summaries for EIF1AX Gene

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]

CIViC summary for EIF1AX Gene

GeneCards Summary for EIF1AX Gene

EIF1AX (Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 1A X-Linked) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with EIF1AX include Differentiated Thyroid Carcinoma and Melanoma, Uveal. Among its related pathways are Translation Factors and Activation of the mRNA upon binding of the cap-binding complex and eIFs, and subsequent binding to 43S. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include translation initiation factor activity. 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.
