DHX29

DHX29

A gene on chromosome 5q11.2 that encodes a member of the Asp-Glu-Ala-His (DEAH)-motif-containing family of ATP-dependent RNA helicases, which helps initiate translation and specifically binds to the 40S ribosome.

Interestingly, LGP2 sentinel function seems to be shared by many other DExD/H box RNA helicases such as DDX3, DHX9, DHX29, and DDX41, which bind directly to nucleic acids and interact with either RIG-I or MAVS to activate the pathway (see [60, 61]).
The researchers studied the DHX29, a heli-case protein, which is required for translation initiation--a highly regulated early stage of protein synthesis.
