EIF1AX

A gene on chromosome Xp22.12 that encodes an essential translation initiation factor required for binding the 43S complex to the 5’ end of capped RNA. EIF1AX is 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.
