Although the central α-helical Y(X)4LΦ motif (X, variable amino acid; Φ, hydrophobic amino acid) of the translational regulator 4E-BP [eIF (eukaryotic initiation factor) 4E-binding protein] is the core binding region for the mRNA cap-binding protein eIF4E, the functions of its N- and C-terminal flexible regions for interaction with eIF4E remain to be(More)
The eukaryotic initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) serves as a master switch that controls mRNA translation through the promotive binding to eIF4G and the regulative binding with the endogenous inhibitor 4E-BP. Although the bindings of eIF4G and 4E-BP to eIF4E proceed through the common eIF4E recognition Y(X)(4)Lφ motif (X: variable, φ: hydrophobic) (first binding(More)
