Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have sequence-specific mRNA binding activity and translation release factor activity, codon specific. Predicted to be involved in cytoplasmic translational termination; protein methylation; and regulation of translational termination. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and translation release factor complex. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human ETF1 (eukaryotic translation termination factor 1).
