Eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E-binding protein 1

Gene

EIF4EBP1

Organism
Homo sapiens (Human)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 5 out of 5-Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Repressor of translation initiation that regulates EIF4E activity by preventing its assembly into the eIF4F complex: hypophosphorylated form competes with EIF4G1/EIF4G3 and strongly binds to EIF4E, leading to repress translation. In contrast, hyperphosphorylated form dissociates from EIF4E, allowing interaction between EIF4G1/EIF4G3 and EIF4E, leading to initiation of translation. Mediates the regulation of protein translation by hormones, growth factors and other stimuli that signal through the MAP kinase and mTORC1 pathways.2 Publications

Post-translational modificationi

Phosphorylated on serine and threonine residues in response to insulin, EGF and PDGF. Phosphorylation at Thr-37, Thr-46, Ser-65 and Thr-70, corresponding to the hyperphosphorylated form, is regulated by mTORC1 and abolishes binding to EIF4E.5 Publications
Ubiquitinated: when eIF4E levels are low, hypophosphorylated form is ubiquitinated by the BCR(KLHL25) complex, leading to its degradation and serving as a homeostatic mechanism to maintain translation and prevent eIF4E inhibition when eIF4E levels are low. Not ubiquitinated when hyperphosphorylated (at Thr-37, Thr-46, Ser-65 and Thr-70) or associated with eIF4E.1 Publication

Interactioni

Subunit structurei

Hypophosphorylated EIF4EBP1 competes with EIF4G1/EIF4G3 to interact with EIF4E; insulin stimulated MAP-kinase (MAPK1 and MAPK3) or mTORC1 phosphorylation of EIF4EBP1 causes dissociation of the complex allowing EIF4G1/EIF4G3 to bind and consequent initiation of translation. Interacts (via TOS motif) with RPTOR; promoting phosphorylation by mTORC1 (PubMed:12747827).8 Publications
