Gene: EIF3J (eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 subunit J) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EIF3J
Name: eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 subunit J
Description: This gene encodes a core subunit of the eukaryotic initiation factor 3 complex, which participates in the initiation of translation by aiding in the recruitment of protein and mRNA components to the 40S ribosome. There are pseudogenes for this gene on chromosomes 1, 3, and 9. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2013]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: eIF-3-alpha; eIF3 p35; eIF3-alpha; eIF3-p35; EIF3S1; eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 subunit 1; eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3, subunit 1 (alpha, 35kD); eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3, subunit 1 alpha, 35kDa; eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3, subunit J
