  • FunctionFunctions in the early steps of protein synthesis of a small number of specific mRNAs. Acts by directing the binding of methionyl-tRNAi to 40S ribosomal subunits. In contrast to the eIF-2 complex, it binds methionyl-tRNAi to 40 S subunits in a codon-dependent manner, whereas the eIF-2 complex binds methionyl-tRNAi to 40 S subunits in a GTP-dependent manner. May act by impiging the expression of specific proteins.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Expressed at higher level in pancreas, heart, brain and placenta.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the WD repeat EIF2A family.
    Contains 3 WD repeats.
