24829357 The protein level of eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4B (eIF4B) was dramatically reduced in A549 cells as well as in the lung, spleen, and thymus of mice infected with influenza A virus.
24205356 eIF4B is the RSK downstream effector responsible for elevated Lamgamma2 as well as MYC protein in neoplastic epithelial cells.
24135829 eIF4B-driven expression of these key survival proteins is directly correlated with patient outcome, and eIF4B, DAXX and ERCC5 are identified as novel prognostic markers for poor survival in DLBCL

23813671 Overexpression of pim-2 may inhibit the apoptosis of prostate cancer cells through phosphorylation of eIF4B, thus promoting tumorigenesis.
23749639 our results identify eIF4B as a critical substrate of Pim kinases in mediating the activity of Abl oncogenes
21994950 ORF45/RSK axis-induced eIF4B phosphorylation is involved in translational regulation and is required for optimal KSHV lytic replication.
21840318 Duplex unwinding and ATPase activities of the DEAD-box helicase eIF4A are coupled by eIF4G and eIF4B.
21427765 Studies indicate that eIF4A (DDX2), together with its accessory proteins eIF4B and eIF4H, is thought to act as a helicase that unwinds secondary structures in the mRNA 5' UTR.
19369421 Data show that reduced levels of eIF4B, eIF4H, or polyA-binding protein, also trigger SG formation.
18719248 The interaction of eIF4AI with two accessory factors, eIF4B and eIF4H, was studied.
16763566 Phosphorylation of eIF4B on Ser422 by p90 ribosomal protein S6 kinase (RSK) and S6K is physiologically significant, as it increases the interaction of eIF4B with the eukaryotic translation initiation factor 3.
15078951 data indicate that eIF4B and 4H stimulate the nuclease activity of herpes simplex virus vhs, and they provide evidence that additional mammalian factors are required for targeting to the encephalomyocarditis virus IRES
15071500 eIF4B may mediate some of the effects of the ribosomal protein S6 kinases on translation
12885229 The solution structure of the eIF4B RNA recognition motif (RRM) domain is reported; the core RRM domain provides only a relative weak interaction with RNA targets and appears to require extensions at the N- and C-terminus for high-affinity binding.
