|Other Names||Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2A, eIF-2A, 65 kDa eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2A, Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2A, N-terminally processed, EIF2A|
|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||Functions in the early steps of protein synthesis of a small number of specific mRNAs. Acts by directing the binding of methionyl-tRNAi to 40S ribosomal subunits. In contrast to the eIF- 2 complex, it binds methionyl-tRNAi to 40 S subunits in a codon- dependent manner, whereas the eIF-2 complex binds methionyl-tRNAi to 40 S subunits in a GTP-dependent manner. May act by impiging the expression of specific proteins.|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. Expressed at higher level in pancreas, heart, brain and placenta|
