Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Is predicted to enable sequence-specific mRNA binding activity and translation release factor activity, codon specific. Involved in cytoplasmic translational termination and regulation of translational termination. Acts upstream of or within protein methylation and translational termination. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm. Predicted to be part of translation release factor complex. Predicted to be active in cytosol. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human ETF1 (eukaryotic translation termination factor 1).
