Identification of cDNA clones for the large subunit of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3. Comparison of homologues from human, Nicotiana tabacum, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae


, : Identification of cDNA clones for the large subunit of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3. Comparison of homologues from human, Nicotiana tabacum, Caenorhabditis elegans, and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Journal of Biological Chemistry 272(11): 7106-7113

The cloning of the p180 subunit of human eukaryotic translation initiation factor (eIF) 3 is reported. Data base searches identified related sequences found in members of the plant and fungal kingdoms as well as in other mammals and C. elegans. These sequences shared significant identity with the human clone and probably represent the homologues of the p180 subunit in these organisms.

Eukaryotic translation initiation factor-3 (eIF3) is a large multisubunit complex that binds to the 40 S ribosomal subunit and promotes the binding of methionyl-tRNAi and mRNA. The molecular mechanism by which eIF3 exerts these functions is incomp...
