Immunohistochemical staining of human colon carcinoma tissue by EIF4EBP1 (phospho T70) polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB29233) without blocking peptide (A) or preincubated with blocking peptide (B) under 1:50-1:100 dilution.
This gene encodes one member of a family of translation repressor proteins. The protein directly interacts with eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E (eIF4E), which is a limiting component of the multisubunit complex that recruits 40S ribosomal subunits to the 5' end of mRNAs. Interaction of this protein with eIF4E inhibits complex assembly and represses translation. This protein is phosphorylated in response to various signals including UV irradiation and insulin signaling, resulting in its dissociation from eIF4E and activation of mRNA translation.
