Medical Definition of Cap binding protein

1. Protein (24 kD) with affinity for cap structure at 5' end of mRNA that probably assists, together with other initiation factors, in binding the mRNA to the 40S ribosomal subunit. Translation of mRNA in vitro is faster if it has a cap binding protein. This entry appears with permission from the Dictionary of Cell and Molecular Biology (11 Mar 2008)
