26945967 Activated eIF4E, which is phosphorylated by MNK1, is a regulator of Sox2 expression after irradiation of pancreatic tumor cells.
26944016 Our findings identify the eIF4E- beta-catenin axis as a critical regulator of lung cancer cell growth and survival, and suggest that its pharmacological inhibition may be therapeutically useful in lung cancer.
26668315 Data suggest MNK1/MNK2 stimulate mRNA translation but only of mRNA containing both 5-prime-terminal cap and hairpin duplex; this stimulation involves up-regulation of phosphorylation/mRNA un-winding activity of eIF4E (via decreased binding to eIF4G).
26572974 This review will present eIF4E's structure and functions. It will also expose the use of eIF4E as a therapeutic target in cancer
26498997 This study demonstrates that the activation of eIF4E gene is an essential component of the malignant phenotype in ovarian cancer
26427906 Report the presence of a cryptic pocket at the protein-binding interface of eIF4E, which opens transiently during molecular dynamics simulations of the protein in solvent water and is observed to be stable when water is mixed with benzene molecules.
26397141 mechanistic analysis suggested that LMP1 overexpression induced the expression of eIF4E, while eIF4E-shRNA dramatically attenuated the increase in cell proliferation, invasion, migration and the inhibition of apoptosis triggered by LMP-1 upregulation
26147685 Data show that interferon-gamma regulated the metabolism and mRNA translation of macrophages by targeting the kinases mTORC1 and MNK1/2, both of which converge on the selective regulator of translation initiation eukaryotic initiation factor-4E (eIF4E).
26143374 Data suggest that targets of RNA interference via MIRN206 (microRNA 206) include EIF4E (eukaryotic initiation factor-4E) and MET (proto-oncogene c-met), in addition to PAX3 (paired box gene 3) and SNX2 (sorting nexin 2).
26078354 Findings provide new evidence that PRMT5 plays an important role in CRC pathogenesis through epigenetically regulating arginine methylation of oncogenes such as eIF4E and FGFR3.
