Protein function: Required for the binding of mRNA to ribosomes. Functions in close association with EIF4-F and EIF4-A. Binds near the 5'- terminal cap of mRNA in presence of EIF-4F and ATP. Promotes the ATPase activity and the ATP-dependent RNA unwinding activity of both EIF4-A and EIF4-F. [The UniProt Consortium]
synthetic peptide. The epitope recognized by A301-766A-T maps to a region between residue 500 and 550 of human eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4B using the numbering given in entry NP_001408.2 (GeneID 1975).
