    eukaryotic translation initiation factor 1A
    eIF1a
    SMART accession number:SM00652
    Description: -
    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.

    GO process:translational initiation (GO:0006413)
