26112719 Oligodendrocytes with truncated or deletion mutants eIF2B showed less tolerable to endoplasmic reticulum stress
21795329 These data emphasize the importance of eIF2Balpha in mediating the eIF2 kinase translation-inhibitory activity and may provide insight into the complex nature of vesiculovirus oncolysis.
20628086 Observational study of gene-disease association, gene-environment interaction, and pharmacogenomic / toxicogenomic. (HuGE Navigator)
19913121 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19631657 Crystal structure of the alpha subunit of human translation initiation factor 2B.
18632786 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18330844 The authors suspected VWM and sequenced the genes EIF2B1-5, which revealed one heterozygous mutation in EIF2B4.
18263758 Study reports 9 novel mutations in EIF2B genes in 8 patients, increasing number of known mutations to more than 120. Using homology modeling, analyzed the impact of novel mutations on the 5 subunits of eIF2B protein (alpha, beta, gamma, delta, epsilon)
15776425 analysis of novel mutations in patients with eIF2B-related disorders
14993275 Biochemical analyses indicate that mutations analyzed in eIF2Balpha and -epsilon reduce the steady-state level of the affected subunit, while the most severe mutant tested, eIF2Bbeta(V341D), forms complexes with reduced stability and lower eIF2B activity.
