|Other Accession||P79398, Q62448, Q95L46|
|Calculated MW||H=102,98;M=102,98;R=102 KDa|
|Other Names||Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4 gamma 2, eIF-4-gamma 2, eIF-4G 2, eIF4G 2, Death-associated protein 5, DAP-5, p97, EIF4G2 (HGNC:3297)|
|Target/Specificity||This EIF4G2 antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 12-44 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human EIF4G2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||EIF4G2 Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Appears to play a role in the switch from cap-dependent to IRES-mediated translation during mitosis, apoptosis and viral infection. Cleaved by some caspases and viral proteases.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed in all adult tissues examined, with high levels in skeletal muscle and heart. Also expressed in fetal brain, lung, liver and kidney|
Appears to play a role in the switch from cap-dependent to IRES-mediated translation during mitosis, apoptosis and viral infection. Cleaved by some caspases and viral proteases.
