|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||H=29,27,25;M=25;Rat=25 KDa|
|Other Names||EIF4E; EIF4EL1; EIF4F; Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E; eIF-4F 25 kDa subunit; mRNA cap-binding protein|
|Target/Specificity||This EIF4E monoclonal antibody is generated from mouse immunized with EIF4E recombinant protein.|
|Format||Purified monoclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein G column, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||EIF4E Antibody is for research use only and 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. Component of the CYFIP1-EIF4E-FMR1 complex which binds to the mRNA cap and mediates translational repression. In the CYFIP1-EIF4E-FMR1 complex this subunit mediates the binding to the mRNA cap.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, P-body. Cytoplasm|
