Short name: TIF2A

Family relationships

None.

Description

Eukaryotic initiation factor 2A (eIF2A) directly binds the initiator methionyl-tRNA (Met-tRNA(i)) to 40 S ribosomal subunits in a codon-dependent manner [PMID: 15718232]. It may act by impiging the expression of specific proteins [PMID: 12133843].
