Gene Ontology Help

GCN1-GCN20 complex Overview

GO Annotations consist of four mandatory components: a gene product, a term from one of the three Gene Ontology (GO) controlled vocabularies (Molecular Function, Biological Process, and Cellular Component), a reference, and an evidence code.

Functions on translating ribosomes to promote binding of uncharged tRNA to the A-site or in the transfer of uncharged tRNA from the A-site to the histidyl-tRNA synthetase (HisRS)-like domain in GCN2 for kinase activation. It is thus required for activation of GCN2 and the consequent induction of GCN4 translation in amino acid-starved cells.
GO Slim Terms

The yeast GO Slim terms are higher level terms that best represent the major S. cerevisiae biological processes, functions, and cellular components. The GO Slim terms listed here are the broader parent terms for the specific terms to which this gene product is annotated, and thus represent the more general processes, functions, and components in which it is involved.
