26165837 Knockdown of EIF4G2 recapitulated the effects of mir-139, whereas restoring EIF4G2 expression rescued the mir-139 phenotype. elevated miR-139-5p expression is associated with a favorable outcome in acute myeloid leukemia.
25779044 findings provide the first mechanistic insights into the function of DAP5 as a selective regulator of cap-independent translation
24497838 Our results provide evidence that the tumor suppressor effect of miR-520c-3p is mediated through repression of translation while inducing senescence and that eIF4GII is a key effector of this anti-tumor activity.

22909319 Multiple isoforms of eIF4GII arise from multiple promoters & alternative splicing events. A non-canonical CUG initiation codon extends the eIF4GII N-terminus. The eIF4GII N-terminus plays an alternative role in initiation factor assembly.

18450493 Data show that DAP5 promotes cap-independent translation of Bcl-2 and CDK1 to facilitate cell survival during mitosis.
17237356 These data indicate that full-length p97 is a translational activator with essential role(s) in unstressed cells, suggesting a reassessment of current models of p97 function.
17195095 Data show that coxsackievirus B3 proteases 2A and 3C induce apoptotic cell death through mitochondrial injury and cleavage of eIF4GI but not DAP5.
16932749 p97 is functionally different from the closely related C-terminal two-thirds of eIF4GI and it can positively promote protein synthesis and cell proliferation.
16410684 EIF4G2 transcripts exhibited three different expression patterns, downregulation was found in about 50% of the cases analyzed and EIF4G2 gene transcription was associated with invasive tumors.
15718103 Exclusive use of a GUG translation initiation codon is conserved in human, chicken, Xenopus, and zebrafish.
