|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the C-term of human4E-BP1 was used as immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||4E-BP1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Repressor of translation initiation that regulates EIF4E activity by preventing its assembly into the eIF4F complex: hypophosphorylated form competes with EIF4G1/EIF4G3 and strongly binds to EIF4E, leading to repress translation. In contrast, hyperphosphorylated form dissociates from EIF4E, allowing interaction between EIF4G1/EIF4G3 and EIF4E, leading to initiation of translation. Mediates the regulation of protein translation by hormones, growth factors and other stimuli that signal through the MAP kinase and mTORC1 pathways.|

4E-BP1 (eIF4E-binding protein) also known as PHAS, is a 10-12 kDa acidic protein that compete with eIF4G for binding of eiF4E to the mRNA 5 cap structure (1). Binding of the 4E-BPs to eIF4E is reversible and is dependent on the phosphorylation status of 4E-BP. Non-phosphorylated 4E-BP1 will bind strongly to eiF4E while, the phosphorylated form will not (2). Akt, TOR, MAP kinase, S6 kinase, and Cdc2 are known kinases capable of inactivating 4E-BP1 binding to eIF4E by phosphorylating either threonines 35, 45, 69 or serine 64. Although, not all phosphorylation events equally block the 4EBP1-eIF4E interaction (3-4)
