Immunofluorescent analysis of eIF4E (green) showing positive staining in the cytoplasm of MCF-7 cells (right) compared with a negative control in the absence of primary antibody (left). Formalin-fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 5-10 minutes, blocked with 3% BSA-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature and probed with an eIF4E monoclonal antibody (Product # MA1089) in 3% BSA-PBS at a dilution of 1:100 and incubated overnight at 4 °C in a humidified chamber. Cells were washed with PBST and incubated with a DyLight 488-conjugated goat-anti-mouse IgG (H+L) secondary antibody in PBS at room temperature in the dark. F-actin (red) was stained with a flourescent red phalloidin and nuclei (blue) were stained with DAPI for 5-10 minutes in the dark. Images were taken at a magnification of 60x.

MA1-089 detects eIF4E in human and mouse samples and has been successfully used in Western blot, immunofluorescence, immunocytochemistry and immunoprecipitation applications. MA1-089 does not react with rat eIF4E.
The MA1-089 immunogen is full length human eIF4E produced in HEK293T cells.
All eukaryotic cellular mRNAs are blocked at their 5-prime ends with the 7-methyl-guanosine cap structure, m7GpppX (where X is any nucleotide). This structure is involved in several cellular processes including enhanced translational efficiency, splicing, mRNA stability, and RNA nuclear export. eIF4E is a eukaryotic translation initiation factor involved in directing ribosomes to the cap structure of mRNAs. It exists in both free form and as part of a multiprotein complex termed eIF4F. eIF4E is the rate-limiting component of the eukaryotic translation apparatus and is involved in the mRNA-ribosome binding step of eukaryotic protein synthesis.
