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.
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).

Paraformaldehyde-fixed human epithelial cells labeling EIF2SI using ab32157 at 1/100 dilution in ICC/IF, followed by an Alexa Fluor®647 conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG.
The cells were blocked with BSA before incubation with the antibody for 1 hour.
Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human liver carcinoma using ab32157 at 1/50 dilution.
Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab32157 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 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 (ab32157, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.
Dot blot analysis on antigen peptide. A nitrocellulose membrane was spotted with (1) phospho-peptide and (2) non-phospho-peptide at 5, 1, and 0.1 ng, and then blotted with ab32157 at 1:500 dilution.
