26112719 Oligodendrocytes with truncated or deletion mutants eIF2B showed less tolerable to endoplasmic reticulum stress
21795329 These data emphasize the importance of eIF2Balpha in mediating the eIF2 kinase translation-inhibitory activity and may provide insight into the complex nature of vesiculovirus oncolysis.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)

18632786 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18330844 The authors suspected VWM and sequenced the genes EIF2B1-5, which revealed one heterozygous mutation in EIF2B4.
18263758 Study reports 9 novel mutations in EIF2B genes in 8 patients, increasing number of known mutations to more than 120. Using homology modeling, analyzed the impact of novel mutations on the 5 subunits of eIF2B protein (alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon)
15776425 analysis of novel mutations in patients with eIF2B-related disorders
14993275 Biochemical analyses indicate that mutations analyzed in eIF2Balpha and -epsilon reduce the steady-state level of the affected subunit, while the most severe mutant tested, eIF2Bbeta(V341D), forms complexes with reduced stability and lower eIF2B activity.
14566705 mutational analysis of the eIF2B genes of patients with an antenatal- or early-infantile-onset encephalopathy and an early demise
