Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 subunit J (IPR013906)

Short name: eIF3j

Family relationships



This shows protein subunits of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 J (eIF3j). It is a component of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 (eIF-3) complex, which is involved in protein synthesis and, together with other initiation factors, stimulates binding of mRNA and methionyl-tRNAi to the 40S ribosome [PMID: 14688252, PMID: 8995409]. In Saccharomyces cerevisiae, eIF3j has been shown to be required for processing of 20S pre-rRNA and binds to 18S rRNA and eIF3 subunits Rpg1p and Prt1p [PMID: 11387228].
