Sequences for two cDNAs encoding Arabidopsis thaliana eukaryotic protein synthesis initiation factor 4A

Gene. 1992 Oct 21;120(2):313-4. doi: 10.1016/0378-1119(92)90112-3.

Abstract

Two distinct cDNAs encoding protein synthesis initiation factor 4A (eIF-4A) were isolated from an Arabidopsis thaliana cDNA library and sequenced. The deduced amino acid sequences from the two cDNAs were compared to eIF-4A from tobacco, mouse and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. The putative ATP-binding sites and RNA helicase motifs were identified.
