NCBI Description of ETF1
|This gene encodes a class-1 polypeptide chain release factor. The encoded protein plays an essential role in directing termination of mRNA translation from the termination codons UAA, UAG and UGA. This protein is a component of the SURF complex which promotes degradation of prematurely terminated mRNAs via the mechanism of nonsense-mediated mRNA decay (NMD). Alternate splicing results in coding and non-coding transcript variants. Pseudogenes of this gene are found on chromosomes 5, 7 and X.|
