EIF2S1 Antibody (N-term) Blocking peptide

Synthetic peptide

Product Information
Primary Accession P05198
Clone Names 100409016
Peptide ID 100409016
Additional Information
Gene ID 1965
Other Names Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 subunit 1, Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 subunit alpha, eIF-2-alpha, eIF-2A, eIF-2alpha, EIF2S1, EIF2A
Target/Specificity The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13469a was selected from the N-term region of EIF2S1. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.
Format Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.
PrecautionsThis product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Name EIF2S1
Synonyms EIF2A
Function Functions in the early steps of protein synthesis by forming a ternary complex with GTP and initiator tRNA. This complex binds to a 40S ribosomal subunit, followed by mRNA binding to form a 43S preinitiation complex. Junction of the 60S ribosomal subunit to form the 80S initiation complex is preceded by hydrolysis of the GTP bound to eIF-2 and release of an eIF-2-GDP binary complex. In order for eIF-2 to recycle and catalyze another round of initiation, the GDP bound to eIF-2 must exchange with GTP by way of a reaction catalyzed by eIF-2B.
Cellular Location Cytoplasmic granule. Note=The cytoplasmic granules are stress granules which are a dense aggregation in the cytosol composed of proteins and RNAs that appear when the cell is under stress. Colocalizes with NANOS3 in the stress granules (By similarity).

The translation initiation factor EIF2 catalyzes the firstregulated step of protein synthesis initiation, promoting thebinding of the initiator tRNA to 40S ribosomal subunits. Bindingoccurs as a ternary complex of methionyl-tRNA, EIF2, and GTP. EIF2is composed of 3 nonidentical subunits, the 36-kD EIF2-alphasubunit (EIF2S1), the 38-kD EIF2-beta subunit (EIF2S2; MIM 603908),and the 52-kD EIF2-gamma subunit (EIF2S3; MIM 300161). The rate offormation of the ternary complex is modulated by thephosphorylation state of EIF2-alpha (Ernst et al., 1987 [PubMed2948954]).
