A 110-kilodalton subunit of translation initiation factor eIF3 and an associated 135-kilodalton protein are encoded by the Saccharomyces cerevisiae TIF32 and TIF31 genes.

Abstract

Translation initiation factor eIF3 is a multisubunit protein complex required for initiation of protein biosynthesis in eukaryotic cells. The complex promotes ribosome dissociation, the binding of the initiator methionyl-tRNA to the 40 S ribosomal subunit, and mRNA recruitment to the ribosome. In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae eIF3 comprises up to 8… (More)
