Background Information

EIF2C2, also named as AGO2, belongs to the argonaute family and Ago subfamily. It is required for RNA-mediated gene silencing (RNAi) by the RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC). The 'minimal RISC' appears to include EIF2C2/AGO2 bound to a short guide RNA such as a microRNA (miRNA) or short interfering RNA (siRNA). EIF2C2 may inhibit translation initiation by binding to the 7-methylguanosine cap, thereby preventing the recruitment of the translation initiation factor eIF4-E. It also inhibit translation initiation via interaction with EIF6, which itself binds to the 60S ribosomal subunit and prevents its association with the 40S ribosomal subunit. EIF2C2 can also upregulate the translation of specific mRNAs under certain growth conditions. This antibody is specific to EIF2C2. EIF2C2 exists two isoforms and molecular weight of isoforms are 97 kDa and 94 kDa.
