The translation initiation factor EIF2 catalyzes the first regulated step of protein synthesis initiation promoting the binding of the initiator tRNA to 40S ribosomal subunits. Binding occurs as a ternary complex of methionyl-tRNA EIF2 and GTP. EIF2 is composed of 3 nonidentical subunits the 36-kD EIF2-alpha subunit (EIF2S1) the 38-kD EIF2-beta subunit (EIF2S2; MIM 603908) and the 52-kD EIF2-gamma subunit (EIF2S3; MIM 300161). The rate of formation of the ternary complex is modulated by the phosphorylation state of EIF2-alpha (Ernst et al. 1987 [PubMed 2948954]).[supplied by OMIM Feb 2010]
