|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||28362 Da|
|Antigen Region||12-41 aa|
|Other Names||Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E type 2, eIF-4E type 2, eIF4E type 2, Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E homologous protein, Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E-like 3, eIF4E-like protein 4E-LP, mRNA cap-binding protein 4EHP, mRNA cap-binding protein type 3, EIF4E2, EIF4EL3|
|Target/Specificity||This EIF4E2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 12-41 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human EIF4E2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is prepared by Saturated Ammonium Sulfate (SAS) precipitation followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|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||EIF4E2 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Recognizes and binds the 7-methylguanosine-containing mRNA cap during an early step in the initiation (PubMed:9582349, PubMed:17368478, PubMed:25624349). Acts as a repressor of translation initiation (PubMed:22751931). In contrast to EIF4E, it is unable to bind eIF4G (EIF4G1, EIF4G2 or EIF4G3), suggesting that it acts by competing with EIF4E and block assembly of eIF4F at the cap (By similarity).|

EIF4E2 is expressed exclusively in the cytoplasm. This protein 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.
