InnateDB Annotation
Summary
The regulated phosphorylation of EIF4E has a key role in antiviral host defense by selectively controlling the translation of NFKBIA mRNA, which encodes a critical suppressor of the innate antiviral response. As a result, EIF4E null mice exhibit lower susceptibility to viral infections. (Demonstrated in mice)
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Mus musculus] The regulated phosphorylation of Eif4e has a key role in antiviral host defense by selectively controlling the translation of Nfkbia mRNA, which encodes a critical suppressor of the innate antiviral response. As a result, Eif4e null mice exhibit lower susceptibility to viral infections.
Entrez Gene
Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a component of the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4F complex, which recognizes the 7-methylguanosine cap structure at the 5' end of cellular mRNAs. The encoded protein aids in translation initiation by recruiting ribosomes to the mRNA. Association of this protein with the 4F complex is the rate-limiting step in translation initiation. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]
