    Despite the recent progress in our understanding of the numerous functions of individual subunits of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3 (eIF3), there is still only little known on the molecular level. Using NMR spectroscopy, we determined the first solution structure of an interaction between eIF3 subunits. We revealed that a conserved tryptophan residue in the human eIF3j N-terminal acidic domain (NTA) is held in the helix α1 – loop L5 hydrophobic pocket of the human eIF3b-RRM. Mutating the corresponding “pocket” residues in its yeast orthologue reduces cellular growth rate, eliminates eIF3j/HCR1 association with eIF3b/PRT1 in vitro and in vivo, affects 40S-occupancy of eIF3, and produces a leaky scanning defect indicative of a deregulation of the AUG selection process. Unexpectedly, we found that the N-terminal half (NTD) of eIF3j/HCR1 containing the NTA motif is indispensable and sufficient for wild-type growth of yeast cells
