26614665 Studies indicate a developing focus on targeting eukaryotic initiation factor 4A eIF4A1 and eIF4A2 as cancer therapy.
26113725 eIF4A functions as an adenosine triphosphate-dependent processive helicase when complexed with two accessory proteins, eIF4G and eIF4B.

22076380 study found Burkholderia pseudomallei BPSL1549 acted as a potent cytotoxin against eukaryotic cells; it promotes deamidation of glutamine-339 of the translation initiation factor eIF4A, abolishing its helicase activity and inhibiting translation
