EIF4G2 (human)

EIF4G2 a general repressor of translation by forming translationally inactive complexes. Appears to play a role in the switch from cap-dependent to IRES-mediated translation during mitosis, apoptosis and viral infection. Interacts with the protein kinases Mnk1 and -2. Binds EIF4A and EIF3. Cleaved by some caspases and viral proteases. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
