Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4 gamma 3 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the EIF4G3 gene.[1][2] The gene encodes a protein that functions in translation by aiding the assembly of the ribosome onto the messenger RNA template.[3] Confusingly, this protein is usually referred to as eIF4GII, as although EIF4G3 is the third gene that is similar to eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4 gamma, the second isoform EIF4G2 is not an active translation initiation factor.[4]

Interactions[edit]

EIF4G3 has been shown to interact with PABPC1.[5]
