FIAT: Factors in Arabidopsis translation

  • eIF2D

purported to function in place of eIF2 in translation of some IRESes or leaderless or Au/U rich mRNA type elements in mammals. Also appears to be to bring tRNAs to the 40S ribosome P-site. Plant function unknown, although there is a conserved gene in Arabidopsis. non-plant references for eIF2D
