|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||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1955a was selected from the N-term region of human EIF4E2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. 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 of protein synthesis and facilitates ribosome binding by inducing the unwinding of the mRNAs secondary structures.|
