EIF4A1, also known as Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 4A1, is a highly conserved RNA helicase enzyme involved in the initiation of translation, a fundamental process in protein synthesis. It is a member of the DEAD-box RNA helicase family and plays a crucial role in unwinding secondary structures within mRNA molecules, enabling ribosomes to access the initiation codon and begin protein synthesis. One of the primary functions of EIF4A1 is its role in the assembly of the eukaryotic translation initiation complex. In conjunction with other eukaryotic initiation factors, EIF4A1 binds to the 5' untranslated region (UTR) of mRNA and scans along the...
