FunctionEssential peptidyl-tRNA hydrolase component of the mitochondrial large ribosomal subunit. Acts as a codon-independent translation release factor that has lost all stop codon specificity and directs the termination of translation in mitochondrion, possibly in case of abortive elongation. May be involved in the hydrolysis of peptidyl-tRNAs that have been prematurely terminated and thus in the recycling of stalled mitochondrial ribosomes.
Tissue specificityDown-regulated during the in vitro differentiation of HT29-D4 colon carcinoma cells.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the prokaryotic/mitochondrial release factor family. ICT1 subfamily.
