Expression of translation initiation factors elF-4E and elF-2alpha and a potential physiologic role of continuous protein synthesis in human platelets.


It is generally believed that platelets do not have a functionally significant protein synthetic machinery. However, our analysis demonstrated that normal bone marrow megakaryocytes express high levels of translation initiation factors eIF-4E and eIF-2alpha and the expression of these protein synthesis initiation factors is continued in platelets (as… (More)
