eIF1aeukaryotic translation initiation factor 1A
|SMART accession number:||SM00652|
|Interpro abstract (IPR001253):|
Eukaryotic translation initiation factor A (eIF-1A) (formerly known as eiF-4C) is a protein that seems to be required for maximal rate of protein biosynthesis. It enhances ribosome dissociation into subunits and stabilises the binding of the initiator Met-tRNA to 40S ribosomal subunits [(PUBMED:7559407)]. The archaea possess an eIF-1A homolog.
