Eukaryotic Translation Initiation Factor 4E Binding Protein 2, 4E-BP2, eIF4E-binding protein 2, 4EBP2, PHASII, phosphorylated.
EIF4EBP2 belongs to the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E binding protein family. Even though EIF4EBP2 protein binds eIF4E and inhibits translation initiation, growth factors can release this inhibition by a phosphorylation-dependent disruption. EIF4EBP2 mediates the regulation of protein translation by hormones, growth factors and other stimuli that signal through the MAP kinase pathway. Regulation of this protein is associated to cell proliferation, cell differentiation and viral infection.
EIF4EBP2 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Store, frozen at -20°C for longer periods of time.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
