Inhibition of Cap-initiation complexes linked to a novel mechanism of eIF4G depletion in acute myocardial ischemia


Translational control in the rat heart was characterized during acute myocardial ischemia introduced by left coronary artery ligature. Within 10 min of ischemia, eukaryotic (eIF)4E binds to its negative regulator, eIF4E-binding protein-1 (4E-BP1), but the levels of 4E-BP1 are insufficient to disrupt cap-dependent mRNA initiation complexes. However, by 1 h… (More)
