The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/200 - 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
1/2000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 36 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 36 kDa).
Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.
FunctionFunctions in the early steps of protein synthesis by forming a ternary complex with GTP and initiator tRNA. This complex binds to a 40S ribosomal subunit, followed by mRNA binding to form a 43S preinitiation complex. Junction of the 60S ribosomal subunit to form the 80S initiation complex is preceded by hydrolysis of the GTP bound to eIF-2 and release of an eIF-2-GDP binary complex. In order for eIF-2 to recycle and catalyze another round of initiation, the GDP bound to eIF-2 must exchange with GTP by way of a reaction catalyzed by eIF-2B.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the eIF-2-alpha family. Contains 1 S1 motif domain.
Post-translational modificationsSubstrate for at least 4 kinases: EIF2AK1/HRI, EIF2AK2/PKR, EIF2AK3/PERK and EIF2AK4/GCN2. Phosphorylation stabilizes the eIF-2/GDP/eIF-2B complex and prevents GDP/GTP exchange reaction, thus impairing the recycling of eIF-2 between successive rounds of initiation and leading to global inhibition of translation (PubMed:15207627, PubMed:18032499). Phosphorylated; phosphorylation on Ser-52 by the EIF2AK4/GCN2 protein kinase occurs in response to amino acid starvation and UV irradiation.
Cellular localizationCytoplasmic granule. The cytoplasmic granules are stress granules which are a dense aggregation in the cytosol composed of proteins and RNAs that appear when the cell is under stress. Colocalizes with NANOS3 in the stress granules (By similarity).

Immunoprecipitation - EIF2S1 antibody (ab70542)
1mg of whole cell lysate was immunoprecipitated with ab70542 at 3ug/mg of lysate (lane 1) or a control rabbit IgG (lane 2). For the subsequent western blot, 20% of the immunoprecipitated was loaded per lane, and ab70542 was used at 1ug/ml.
