EIF1AY

EIF1AY

A gene on chromosome Yq11.223 that encodes a ubiquitous translation initiation factor required for the maximum rate of protein biosynthesis. It enhances ribosome dissociation into subunits and stabilises the binding of the initiator Met-tRNA(I) to 40S ribosomal subunits.

Two candidates, representing genes RPS4Y1 (ribosomal protein S4, Y-linked 1) and EIF1AY (eukaryotic translation initiation factor 1A, Y-linked), were detected with reliable signals in all male samples, whereas transcripts for these 2 genes were undetected in all but one female sample.
