|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||69151 Da|
|Antigen Region||400-429 aa|
|Other Names||Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4B, eIF-4B, EIF4B|
|Target/Specificity||This EIF4B antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 400-429 amino acids from human EIF4B.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||EIF4B Antibody (S422) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for the binding of mRNA to ribosomes. Functions in close association with EIF4-F and EIF4-A. Binds near the 5'- terminal cap of mRNA in presence of EIF-4F and ATP. Promotes the ATPase activity and the ATP-dependent RNA unwinding activity of both EIF4-A and EIF4-F.|
