Western blot analysis of EIF2C2 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with EIF2C2 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00027161-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with EIF2C2 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 2E12-1C9 (Cat # H00027161-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene encodes a member of the Argonaute family of proteins which play a role in RNA interference. The encoded protein is highly basic, and contains a PAZ domain and a PIWI domain. It may interact with dicer1 and play a role in short-interfering-RNA-mediated gene silencing. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
