Summary
This gene encodes eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4H (eIF4H) that plays a critical role in the process of protein synthesis. The encoded protein is an RNA-binding protein that, in concert with other translation initiation factors, helps unwind the 5' cap-proximal region of mRNA to prepare it for ribosomal attachment. Mice lacking the encoded protein displayed growth retardation with a significant reduction of body weight, a smaller brain volume and altered brain morphology. Behaviorally, mice lacking the encoded protein exhibit severe impairments of fear-related associative learning and memory formation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2015]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
