26742780 The reactive oxygen species-generating NADPH oxidase-4 (Nox4) is induced downstream of ATF4, binds to a PP1-targeting subunit GADD34 at the endoplasmic reticulum, and inhibits PP1 activity to increase eIF2alpha phosphorylation and ATF4 levels.
26717981 a delay in eIF2-bound GTP hydrolysis should occur. In this work, we reconstructed this situation and found that such a delay leads to the redistribution of initiation complexes in favor to downstream AUG codons.
26283179 Our work suggests that OLA1 is a novel translational GTPase and plays a suppressive role in translation and cell survival, as well as cancer growth and progression.
26100893 Data indicate that protein phosphatase 1 subunit GADD34 directly interacts with eukaryotic translation initiation factor 2 subunit alpha (eIF2alpha).
25899421 Classical swine fever virus (CSFV) infection increased the phosphorylation of eukaryotic translation initiation factor (eIF)2alpha and its kinase PKR. The activation of PKR during CSFV infection is beneficial to the virus.
25807820 These findings provide evidence for a pro-survival role of PERK-eIF2alpha phosphorylation arm that contributes to chronic myelogenous leukemia progression and development of imatinib resistance.
25774599 localised G-actin depletion at sites enriched for PPP1R15 enhanced eIF2alpha phosphorylation.
25762631 BRCA1 is upregulated by depletion of the eIF2.GTP.Met-tRNAi translation initiation complex
25759478 GCN2 activation and phosphorylation of eIF2alpha in response to mTORC1 inhibition are necessary for autophagy.
25621764 a single uORF is sufficient for eIF2-mediated translation control.
