Polyclonal Goat Affinity Purified B
eIF-4G1 (eukaryotic translation Initiation Factor 4 Gamma 1) is an important member of the translation initiation mechanism. It serves as a scaffold for other initiation factors needed for the recruitment of mRNA to the ribosome, including eIF-4E, eIF-4A, eIF3, and PABP (poly (A)-binding protein). The eIF-4E/eIF-4G interaction binds to the 5' m7GTP mRNA cap, while the PABP/eIF-4G interaction binds to the poly (A) tail of mRNA. eIF-4A is an ATP-dependent RNA helicase. These interactions link the process of poly (A) binding, mRNA cap recognition, and unwinding of secondary structure. In addition when eIF-4G is cleaved by a viral protease the majority of host cell mediated translation is diverted to an IRES (internal ribosomal entry site) mediated initiation of translation.
