 Searchable Terms for eIF2alpha purchase    MBS9501438 is a ready-to-use microwell, strip-or-full plate Phospho Cell-Based ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) Kit for analyzing the presence of the eIF2alpha, ELISA Kit target analytes in biological samples. The concentration gradients of the kit standards or positive controls render a theoretical kit detection range in biological research samples containing eIF2alpha, with an estimated sensitivity of >=5000 cells/well. The ELISA analytical biochemical technique of the MBS9501438 kit is based on eIF2alpha antibody-eIF2alpha antigen interactions (immunosorbency) and an HRP colorimetric detection system to detect eIF2alpha antigen targets in samples. The ELISA Kit is designed to detect native, not recombinant, eIF2alpha. Appropriate sample types may include undiluted body fluids and/or tissue homogenates, secretions such as Researchers plate their cell line of choice. Quality control assays assessing reproducibility identified the intra-assay CV (%) and inter-assay CV(%).

 NCBI Summary for eIF2alpha    The translation initiation factor EIF2 catalyzes the first regulated step of protein synthesis initiation, promoting the binding of the initiator tRNA to 40S ribosomal subunits. Binding occurs as a ternary complex of methionyl-tRNA, EIF2, and GTP. EIF2 is composed of 3 nonidentical subunits, the 36-kD EIF2-alpha subunit (EIF2S1), the 38-kD EIF2-beta subunit (EIF2S2; MIM 603908), and the 52-kD EIF2-gamma subunit (EIF2S3; MIM 300161). The rate of formation of the ternary complex is modulated by the phosphorylation state of EIF2-alpha (Ernst et al., 1987 [PubMed 2948954]).[supplied by OMIM, Feb 2010]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for eIF2alpha    eIF2-alpha: a translation initiation factor that functions 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. Phosphorylated by at least 4 kinases: PERK, GCN2, HRI and PKR. 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. Upregulated in some thyroid cancers and bronchiolo-alveolar adenocarcinomas; aberrant phosphorylation correlates with Alzheimer disease and Epstein-Barr virus infections.
