|SMART accession number:||SM00937|
|Description:||This domain is found in peptide chain release factors.|
|Interpro abstract (IPR005139):|
This domain is found in peptide chain release factors. Peptide chain release factors are important for protein synthesis since they direct the termination of translation in response to the peptide chain termination codons UAG and UAA. These are structurally distinct but both contain the PCRF domain [(PUBMED:11779511)].
|GO process:||translational termination (GO:0006415)|
|GO component:||cytoplasm (GO:0005737)|
|GO function:||translation release factor activity, codon specific (GO:0016149)|
