Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 25 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 25 kDa).


  • 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.

  • Predicted band size : 25 kDa

    HeLa cell lysates (A) and HeLa cell lysates treated with alkaline phosphatase (B) were resolved by SDS-PAGE on a 4-20% Tris-glycine gel. The proteins were then transferred to PVDF membrane. Membranes were incubated with 1 µg/mL ab4774. After washing, membranes were incubated with goat (ab’)2 anti-rabbit IgG alkaline phosphatase and bands were detected using the Tropix WesternStar detection method.

  • Predicted band size : 25 kDa

    Extracts of HeLa cells were resolved by SDS-PAGE on a 4-20% Tris-glycine gel and transferred to PVDF. The membrane was blocked with a 5% BSA-TBST buffer for one hour at room temperature, either left untreated (1-4) or treated with lambda (λ) phosphatase (5), and then incubated with the eIF4E (phospho S209) antibody for two hours at room temperature in a 3% BSA-TBST buffer, following prior incubation with: no peptide (1,5), the nonphosphopeptide corresponding to the phosphopeptide immunogen (2), a generic phosphoserine-containing peptide (3), or the phosphopeptide immunogen (4). After washing, the membrane was incubated with goat F(ab’)2 anti-rabbit IgG alkaline phosphatase and signals were detected using the Pierce SuperSignal™ method. The data show that only the peptide corresponding to eIF4E (phospho S209) blocks the antibody signal, demonstrating the specificity of the antibody. The data also show that phosphatase stripping eliminates the signal, verifying that the antibody is phospho-specific.
