Highly conserved genes coding for eukaryotic translation initiation factor eIF-4A of tobacco have specific alterations in functional motifs.

Eukaryotic translation initiation factor eIF-4A is an ATP-dependent RNA helicase that is required for the binding of mRNA to ribosomes. Plant eIF-4A-like proteins are highly homologous to eIF-4As from yeast, mouse and Drosophila melanogaster. The pattern of intron-exon boundaries in eIF-4A-like genes are conserved within tobacco, but are not conserved with other organisms. Fixed spacings between the functionally important sequence motifs, GKT-PTRELA (72 bp), DEAD-SAT (81 bp) and SAT-HRIGR (426 bp), are conserved between plants, mouse, Drosophila and yeast.[1]
