Literature on DHX29

DHX29 [ENSP00000251636]

DEAH (Asp-Glu-Ala-His) box polypeptide 29; ATP-binding RNA helicase involved in translation initiation. Part of the 43S pre-initiation complex that is required for efficient initiation on mRNAs of higher eukaryotes with structured 5'-UTRs by promoting efficient NTPase-dependent 48S complex formation. Specifically binds to the 40S ribosome near the mRNA entrance. Does not possess a processive helicase activity; Belongs to the DEAD box helicase family. DEAH subfamily.
