|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 Antibody: The translation of mRNA in eukaryotic cells is regulated by the presence of amino acids through multiple mechanisms. One such mechanism involves the evolutionarily conserved serine/threonine kinase TOR (Target of rapamycin, also known as mTOR), which regulates cell growth and cell cycle through its ability to integrate signals from nutrient levels and growth factors. One downstream target of TOR is the eukaryotic initiation factor 4E binding protein 1 (4E-BP1) whose phosphorylation prevents its association with eIF4E, preferentially stimulating translation of mRNAs containing long, highly structured 5'-UTRs. Rapamycin inhibits TOR resulting in reduced cell growth and reduced rates of cell cycle and cell proliferationl, at least in part by inhibiting the activity of TOR towards 4E-BP1.
