Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab59300 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA 1/40000.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 69 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 69 kDa).
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml.


  • Function
    Required for the binding of mRNA to ribosomes. Functions in close association with EIF4-F and EIF4-A. Binds near the 5'-terminal cap of mRNA in presence of EIF-4F and ATP. Promotes the ATPase activity and the ATP-dependent RNA unwinding activity of both EIF4-A and EIF4-F.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated at Ser-422 by RPS6KA1 and RPS6KB1; phosphorylation enhances the affinity of EIF4B for the EIF3 complex.

  • ICC/IF image of ab59300 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab59300, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
