|Other Accession||NM_053974, NP_446426|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat, Rabbit, Pig, Horse, Bovine, Guinea Pig, Dog|
|Predicted||Human, Mouse, Rat, Pig, Chicken, Guinea Pig, Dog|
|Other Names||Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E, eIF-4E, eIF4E, eIF-4F 25 kDa subunit, mRNA cap-binding protein, Eif4e|
|Format||Liquid. Purified antibody supplied in 1x PBS buffer with 0.09% (w/v) sodium azide and 2% sucrose.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Add 50 ul of distilled water. Final anti-Eif4e antibody concentration is 1 mg/ml in PBS buffer with 2% sucrose. For longer periods of storage, store at 20°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Eif4e antibody - C-terminal region is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the CYFIP1-EIF4E-FMR1 complex which binds to the mRNA cap and mediates translational repression. In the CYFIP1-EIF4E-FMR1 complex this subunit mediates the binding to the mRNA cap (By similarity). Recognizes and binds the 7- methylguanosine-containing mRNA cap during an early step in the initiation of protein synthesis and facilitates ribosome binding by inducing the unwinding of the mRNAs secondary structures. May play an important role in spermatogenesis through translational regulation of stage-specific mRNAs during germ cell development.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, P-body. Cytoplasm|
|Tissue Location||Very high levels in post-meiotic testicular germ cells of rats of reproductive age|
