  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC.
  • Target

    • Function
      Its translation stimulation activity is repressed by binding to the complex CYFIP1-FMR1 (By similarity). 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.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the eukaryotic initiation factor 4E family.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylation increases the ability of the protein to bind to mRNA caps and to form the eIF4F complex.

    • Ab33768, at 1/250 dilution, staining eIF4E in paraffin embedded human breast carcinoma tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry.
    • Overlay histogram showing HEK293 cells stained with ab33768 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab33768, 1/50 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in HEK293 cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.

      Predicted band size : 25 kDa
      Observed band size : 30 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
