Regulation summary diagram for infC

IF-3 is one of three translation initiation factors in E. coli [Sabol70]. It was also initially identified as a ribosomal dissociation factor [Subramanian68, Subramanian70].

The interaction sites of IF-3 with the 30S subunit have been mapped [Dallas01]. The A790G and U789C mutations in 16S rRNA decreases translation fidelity, which may be due to decreased affinity of the 30S subunit for IF-3 [Qin07, Qin09]. The m2G966 and m5C967 residues of 16S rRNA appear to be important for interaction with IF-3 [Saraiya08].

After the 30S subunit has dissociated from the post-termination ribosome in a process that requires RRF, EF-G, and GTP hydrolysis, IF-3 binds and stimulates dissociation of deacylated tRNA [Karimi99, Peske05, Hirokawa05] and destabilizes binding of all tested tRNAs to the 30S subunit [Antoun06]. IF-3 also destabilizes incorrect initiation ternary complexes [Risuleo76]. The presence of fMet-tRNAfMet increases the rate of dissociation of IF-3 from the 30S subunit and subsequently increases the rate of docking to the 50S subunit [vanderHofstad78, Antoun06a]. In the presence of IF-3, the 30S preinitiation complex can not dock to the 50S subunit [Antoun06a]. The path of IF-3 binding to the 30S subunit and its subsequent release upon 30S association with the 50S subunit has been probed [Fabbretti07].

IF-3 also appears to play a role in recycling of stalled ribosomal complexes [Singh05]. IF-3 appears to facilitate ribosome recycling factor-mediated processing of stalled ribosomes [Singh08].

infC, the gene encoding IF-3, contains the unusual initiation codon AUU [Sacerdot82]. Expression of infC is negatively autoregulated at the level of translation [Butler86]; this regulation is dependent on the presence of the AUU initiation codon [Butler87]. The mechanism of IF-3 autoregulation was originally thought to be based on its ability to differentiate between typical and atypical initiation codons and discriminate against the atypical initiation codons [Sacerdot96, Sussman96] by recognition of codon-anticodon complementarity [Meinnel99] as well as unique features of the initiator tRNA [OConnor01a]. However, recent experiments suggest that discrimination against the AUU start codon in the presence of IF-3 is a kinetic effect [Antoun06].

IF-3 consists of two independent domains that are connected via a flexible hydrophilic linker peptide [Fortier94, Hua98]. The solution structures of the full-length protein [Moreau97] as well as that of the N-terminal [Garcia95] and C-terminal domains [Garcia95a] were determined by NMR. Sites of interaction of both domains with the 30S subunit of the ribosome were determined by NMR [Sette99]. The C-terminal domain retains all activities of the full-length IF-3 [Garcia95a, Petrelli01], while the N-terminal domain provides additional binding energy for the interaction with the 30S subunit [Petrelli01]. A physical link between the two domains is required for full function of IF-3 [deCock99]. The phenotypes of a point mutation, Y75N, in the N-terminal domain indicate that this domain is involved in start codon discrimination, initiator tRNA selection, and inhibition of leaderless mRNA translation [Maar08].

Together with IF-1 and CspA, IF-3 plays a role in translational bias during cold acclimation [Giuliodori04, Giuliodori07]. infC transcription and IF-3 synthesis increases during cold shock, and IF-3 increases the rate of initiator tRNA binding to ribosomes programmed with cold shock mRNAs [Giuliodori07].

Overexpression of IF-3 decreases the efficiency of translation re-initiation for the second open reading frame in translationally coupled polycistronic mRNA [Yoo08].
