Gene: EIF4E (eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E) Homo sapiens
Symbol: EIF4E
Name: eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E
Description: Exhibits several functions, including RNA binding activity; eukaryotic initiation factor 4G binding activity; and repressing transcription factor binding activity. Involved in G1/S transition of mitotic cell cycle; positive regulation of mitotic cell cycle; and regulation of translation. Localizes to several cellular components, including RISC complex; cytoplasmic ribonucleoprotein granule; and eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4F complex. Implicated in autistic disorder.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AUTS19; CBP; eIF-4E; eIF-4F 25 kDa subunit; EIF4E1; EIF4EL1; EIF4F; eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E-like 1; MGC111573; mRNA cap-binding protein
