General annotation (Comments)

Function

mRNA-binding protein involved in translation elongation. Has an important function at the level of mRNA turnover, probably acting downstream of decapping. Involved in actin dynamics and cell cycle progression, mRNA decay and probably in a pathway involved in stress response and maintenance of cell wall integrity. Functions as a regulator of apoptosis By similarity. Acts in somatic tissues and its function in the soma is essential for normal growth and reproduction. Ref.2

Subcellular location

Cytoplasm By similarity.

Tissue specificity

Expressed in the somatic tissues. Ref.2

Developmental stage

Expressed throughout development. Ref.2

Post-translational modification

eIF-5A seems to be the only eukaryotic protein to have a hypusine residue which is a post-translational modification of a lysine by the addition of a butylamino group (from spermidine).

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the eIF-5A family.
