Gene: EIF2B1 (eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B subunit alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EIF2B1
Name: eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B subunit alpha
CRRD ID: 733321
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Contributes to guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity and translation initiation factor activity. Involved in T cell receptor signaling pathway; oligodendrocyte development; and translational initiation. Localizes to eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B complex and plasma membrane. Implicated in leukoencephalopathy with vanishing white matter.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: EIF-2B; eIF-2B GDP-GTP exchange factor subunit alpha; EIF-2Balpha; EIF2B; EIF2BA; eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2B, subunit 1 alpha, 26kDa; MGC117409; MGC125868; MGC125869; translation initiation factor eif-2b alpha-subunit; translation initiation factor eIF-2B subunit alpha
