XB-GENEPAGE-944995
Gene Symbol:
eif2a

Gene Name:
eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2A

Synonyms:
eif2alpha ( Add synonyms , Nomenclature history )

Gene Function:
Predicted translation initiation factor related to eIF-3a

Protein Function :
Functions 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 b...[+]
